Across the street walking

Sitting with him

At sixteen on his porch

At the break of dawn talking

Such a wise man

Bestowing on me all the wisdom

He can

Us leaning back in his rocking chairs

Me giving him that look

He sure can cook

Those yummy greens

And those tasty beans

His smile makes me beam

With gleam

Just taking it all in

Gained so much knowledge

That span’s forever

Which makes me better

A brilliant mind

And was so very kind

Forgotten never

My Uncle Rich
