For A Child

                                  For a Child
                                          by Fanny Stearns Davis
                       Your friends shall be the Tall Wind,
                       The River and the Tree;
                       The Sun that laughs and marches,
                       The Swallows and the Sea.

                       Your prayers shall be the murmur
                       Of grasses in the rain;
                       The song of wildwood thrushes
                       That makes God glad again.

                       And you shall run and wander,
                       And you shall dream and sing
                       Of brave things and bright things
                       Beyond the swallow's wings.

                       And you shall envy no man,
                       Nor hurt your heart with sighs,
                       For I will keep you simple
                      That God may make you wise

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
 and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
Proverbs 9:10
