You’ve got to hand it to poetry enthusiasts. This is no walk in the park. And for anyone who wants to crank out 30 poems in 30 days for National Poetry Writing Month, I tip my hat to you. I’m only on the third day!
My brother, the helper
Endowed with wit and charm,
My brother needs no other resource
And is content to pad his world
With humor, love, and candor.
Helper of friends, helper of family,
The constant gentleman
Deserving of trial like any man
But rewarded at last with happiness.
Helper of strangers, helper of mates,
On every new adventure
Equipped for trail or hill or road
His soul was meant to wander.
Helper of parents, helper of brothers,
The delight of our small clan
He lives with laugh and strength and heart
And among my list of heroes.
