In his arms he holds her ever so gently

Through him she will know her true worth

She shall learn how she is to be treated

Determine just how she regards her birth


Either with respect for her own nature

Giving of his time to her with enjoyment

Or disdain and impatience with her ways

The weighty importance of his endowment


Please treat your daughters with respect

The Prompt from:  is “Father”

Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
