Poem for a Grand-daughter



She shall know Wonder

By her father’s love

She shall know Joy

In her mother’s arms

Through eyes now open

To a mind fresh and pure

Guard her now, father

May such she always be

Nurture her, mother

Both her soul and body

Come a day beyond tomorrow

When she stands on her own

Then she will walk steady

And never alone

For she shall know Wonder

And she shall know Joy

By the One who bids us

“Come and enjoy.”
