THE FATHER
<hr>

by Sir Ronald Ross

Come with me then, my son;
Thine eyes are wide for truth:
And I will give thee memories,
And thou shalt give me youth.

The lake laps in silver,
The streamlet leaps her length:
And I will give thee wisdom,
And thou shalt give me strength.

The mist is on the moorland,
The rain roughs the reed:
And I will give thee patience,
And thou shalt give me speed.

When lightnings lash the skyline
Then thou shalt learn thy part:
And when the heavíns are direst,
For thee to give me heart.

Forthrightness I will teach thee;
The vision and the scope;
To hold the hand of honour:ó
And thou shalt give me hope;

And when the heavíns are deepest
And stars most bright above;
May God then teach thee duty;
And thou shalt teach me love.


To all Dad's today and to the memory of our own Fathers who have passed on...

You never quite get over it either - missing my Dad too. Enjoying though all the kids Father Day's surprises. New clothes, pizza and even a game card! biggrin.gif
