Fond Fathering

Frail soul, fond fathering

feeds thee, ingathering

speeds thee, in fallow field

seeds thee, until thou yield

blessing in purer prayer

pressing for others’ care,

proving the Father’s love

tends all who reach above

earth’s fare, their need quelling

who dare beseech His love indwelling.
