A TRIBUTE TO ALL DAUGHTERS
~ Helen Steiner Rice.

Every home should have a daughter,
for there's nothing like a girl
To keep the world around her
in one continous whirl. . .
From the moment she arrives on earth,
and on through womanhood,
A daughter is a female
who is seldom understood . . .
One minute she is laughing,
the next she starts to cry,
Man just can't understand her
and there's just no use to try . . .
She is soft and sweet and cuddly,
But she's also wise and smart,
She's a wondrous combination
Of a mind and brain and heart . . .
And even in her baby days
She's just a born coquette,
And anything she really wants
She manages to get. . .
For even at a tender age
She uses all her wiles
And she can melt the hardest heart
With the sunshine of her smiles. . .
She starts out as a rosebud
With her beauty unrevealed,
Then through a happy childhood
Her petals are unsealed. . .
She's soon a sweet girl graduate,
And then a blushing bride,
And then a lovely woman
As the rosebud opens wide . . .
And someday in the future,
If it be God's gracious will,
She, too, will be a Mother
And know that reverent thrill
That comes to every Mother
Whose heart is filled with love
When she beholds the "angel"
That God sent her from above. . .
And there would be no life at all
In this world or the other
Without a darling daughter
Who, in turn, becomes a Mother!
