How do you describe
A man so dramatic?
You can recognize him
From afar with his hat
Always the gentleman
From a different time
And his distinctive gait
Feet popping as he walks
Expresses out and forward
With his hands while
Pushing back on his feet
A soft man who loves
Beauty and nature and words
Man of conviction who hates
Violence and abuse of power
Who taught me my worth
What no one can take away

(2014)
