For Jim Guinan - Ferris High School "Guinan's Poem" #8


In honor of the late Jim Guinan ...


These poems were written by students at Ferris High School after reading Little Chapel on the River for their honors English class. More on the class here.


“Jim” by CL


He is…


He is the center

He is the father

He is the friend

He is the final word

He is the father-figure

He is the guiding force

The one that doesn’t have to speak to be understood

He is the overseer

He is the welcome and come again

He is the power

He is the decision maker

He is Guinan's
