Kids poem: To a child

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 5, 2016.

  1. Amy, dear child, of all thy friends
    Prize first and best thy mother;
    Her love for thee would still live on
    Though changed were every other.
    Thy youthful mind not now can judge
    Its depth, and worth, and beauty;
    Life's lessons and life's years alone
    Can teach thy debt and duty.

    Then follow where her counsels lead
    True mothers ne' er guide wrongly
    Gather her teachings to thy heart,
    And therein bind them strongly.
    And let thy father's memory,
    With hers, light thine ambition,
    To fill in like integrity
    Life's every worthy mission.

    The friendships that we prize to-day
    Are but as beacons, leading
    To sweeter years and holier love,
    If we God's words are heeding.
    Shouldst thou e'er search in memory's hour
    Earth's truest friends no others
    Thy lone heart may be sure of these:
    Thy father's and thy mother's.
