Father's Day is a wonderful time of the year to tell your dad he is especially loved. I have enjoyed organizing many a Father's Day programs. Here are several poems for Fathers Day for kids to read or memorize that we have utilized in some of our programs. Many of the poems are by D. Alsup a favorite children's poet of mine.



Dad I'd like a car,

To drive all over town.

This riding the bus thing,

Is really getting me down.

I look at all my friends,

Driving down the street,

It's hard for me to look at them,

While I'm walking on my feet.

Which seem to hurt, more and more each day,

Especially when I hear,

A horn toot from behind me,

With laughhter in the rear.


So you see, I need a car,

To help me save time,

Plus It's Fathers day,

It will be a good gift for you,

Scroll to Continue

Not to have worry,

About me,

On your mind.

Happy Father's Day Dad!

D. Alsup


This is what I've come to say,

I Welcome you this Father's Day.

I Welcome you with open arms

I Welcome you with great delight

I Welcome you with heart felt warmth

As we salute our fathers

With smiles bright!

D Alsup


My daddy is a hard worker,

With daily work to do.

I want to be like him,

And be a hard worker too.

I will do honest labor

It will make me a better man

And one day, when I'm all grownup

I'll say

I'm like my dad,


I am.

D. Alsup


When I was little,

My dad took me to the zoo,

He took me to some baseball games

And even fishing too.

Kite flying, roller blading, skate boarding

Go carts, basketball...

But most important of all

On my weekend visits with my dad

He came to be with me,

And not just call.




I think the nicest kind of flowers

To give dad on fathers day

Are just a bouquet of smiles

That you can give away!

I have some here I brought you.

Will you have just one or two?

Will you come closer?

For there's a kiss with those smiles

That I have just for you.


My dad is my best friend you know,

He's taught me many things.

He's taught me how to sing and dance,

He's taught me how to fly,

A remote powered airplane

High up in the sky.

He's taught me how to make a fist

To take up for myself.

He's taught me how to hammer wood

To build a bookshelf.

He's taught me how to cook and clean,

He's taught me many things.

My Dad is my best friend you know

He's taught me many things.

D. Alsup


There once was a dad from Argentina

Who met a dad from Belgium

Who knew a dad from Croatia

Who worked for a dad in Djibouti

Who played hockey with a dad from Ecuador

Who invested money with a dad from Fiji

Who talked with a dad who swam in Grenada

Who photographed a dad from Hawaii

Who sang with a dad from India

Who engineered with a dad form Japan

Who helped a dad from Kazakhstan

Who danced with a dad from Luxembourg

Who sold a business to a dad in Micronesia

Who built a house for a dad in Nicaragua

Who traveled with a dad to Oman

Who hired a dad from the Philippines

Who respected a dad from Quatar

Who bought a sugarcane from a dad in Reunion

Who fished with a dad in Seychelles

Who dined with a dad in Thailand

Who emailed a dad in the USA.

There once was a Dad.

D. Alsup


Dear God,

I pray to you,

To bless my Dear Father.

To walk by him each and every day,

To guide his decisions in the right way.

To give him good health

To give him long life

To give him peace and happiness,

To help him with strife.

Dear God,

I pray to you

To Bless my Dear Father.

D. Alsup
