Treasure Island

Child - symbol of

Rightly said
The father
of a man.
Rightly said
The storehouse
of heaven.

Let the child
Smile, and
in his smile,
See the blooming
of the flowers,
The shines of the sun.

Let the child
not cry, and
If a child cry,
Everything, see,
melee and dry,
And you cannot
find a bird
to sing a song.

Taking care of a child
means taking care of the self
And Almighty God is there
to bless you, my dear,
Fear not if a child
is with you, symbol of
all happiness and peace
And nectar.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
