THERE IS SOMEONE FOLLOWING YOU, DADDY



For A Father

By Anthony Cronin

With the exact length and pace of his father's stride
The son walks,
Echoes and intonations of his father's speech
Are heard when he talks.

Once when the table was tall and the chair a wood
He absorbed his father's smile
And carefully copied the way that he stood.

He grew into exile slowly
With pride and remorse,
In some way better than his begetters,
In others worse.

And now having chosen, with strangers,
Half glad of his choice
He smiles with his father's hesitant smile
And speaks with his voice.

 

 

A Father Gives His Son Advice

By King Solomon in Proverbs 4:1-5

Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father,
and attend to know understanding.

For I give you good doctrine,
forsake ye not my law.

For I was my father's son,
tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

He taught me also, and said unto me,
Let thine heart retain my words:
keep my commandments, and live.

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not;
neither decline from the words of my mouth.
