I read "Daddy" in this book. This poem was really sad. It was from a child's perspective talking about a dad who was never happy. It might have been about a father that left his family.

Myra Cohn Livingston was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Her family moved to California when she was 12 years old. She studied the French horn from age 12 to age 20, becoming so good that the Los Angeles Philharmonic invited her to join them when she was 16 years old. She had other plans. She knew she wanted to write.
