This poem by Belgian poet Maurice Carême, [1899-1978] expresses the love and sentiments of gratitude the poet holds for his father. It’s a nostalgic reminiscence of his childhood plays with his dear father.
Mon père aimé, mon père à moi.
Que pourrais-je te dire
Il fait si doux
Je me sens fort, je me sens roi

|Beloved father, father of mine
You who make me jump on your knees
Like a chamois.
What could I tell you
It feels so peaceful
I feel strong, I feel like a king
