He grasps the wheel with bony claw,
Stares straight ahead with tightened jaw;
Wrinkled skin wraps frail bones, my paw.

The ponies’ power to him yield,
Whirling wheel as saber wield,
Sitting still, I admire my shield.


Author Notes

While driving with a friend I thought of how dad used to look to my small eyes. 

I remembered how safe I felt with him behind the wheel. 

Countless hours have been spent in carefree fun while Dad drove hundreds of miles in all types of traffic. 

This is just a little thing I almost took for granted. 

I hope you enjoy, Loyd
