Those Winter Sundaysby Robert Hayden

Listen to the poem

Those Winter SundaysRobert Hayden, 1913 - 1980Sundays too my father got up early and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold, then with cracked hands that ached from labor in the weekday weather made banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him. I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking. When the rooms were warm, he’d call, and slowly I would rise and dress, fearing the chronic angers of that house, Speaking indifferently to him, who had driven out the cold and polished my good shoes as well. What did I know, what did I know of love’s austere and lonely offices?

Does the song "The Greatest Man I Never Knew" reinforce the idea that actions speak louder than words?

Motivation comes from the heart. Ideas come from the brain. Achievement and success come from hard working hands.
