From the Family Archives

A "pome" written for my father on the occasion of this 25th birthday, by his mother.  (She used to spank her children with a wooden paddle.)

Petite Pome

Mama's little
Angel child.
Laughing gaily
Gets her riled.

Naughty Dave
Cedar shingle
Made his little
Bottom tingle.

Quarter Century
Long gray beard
Crazier pome
I never heerd.

(He never literally had a beard of any kind.)
