Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day
to every man
who has loved a little child
and helped that child to grow!

Arthur A. Chouinard
July 14, 1927 - November 4, 1989

How lucky to have had so good a father!
On us his warm, unstinting sun long shone.
We were, of his hardworking life, the center,
Loved for the pure joy of love alone.
Uncanny are the requisites of pleasure,
Coming as they do within the will.
Knowing well where lay his greatest treasure,
Years on years of love he labored still.

By Domenico Scarlatti
