Sonnet 7: Happy Father’s Day

Love beatifies acts of sacrifice,
Acquits itself just in discharging debts,
Provides kinfolk a glimpse of paradise:
Quantums by which fathers love their begets.
Fathers contend to paint life in Vermeers:
Provincial scenes limned in domestic bliss—
Whilst enthralled in their sundry métiers,
Their bidden toils doth bid the Judas kiss.
Sanguine dreams and high ideals reify
Shared linkages ‘twixt dads and progeny:
Inherent traits redound to signify
A hale family’s epic odyssey.
Keen gratitude for a dad’s priceless worth,
Spans the years to reckon from ere one’s birth.
