Dancing with Daddy


My little heart, my little girl.
Dance with Daddy; dance, my pearl.
Hold my hand; dance with feet.
Sing a little song; dance with beat.
Dance with a smile; sing with joy.
Dance like a peacock; sing like a toy.
Dance with love; sing with kindness.
Life will be blissful, full of happiness.
Dance with Daddy; dance, my pearl.
My little heart, my little girl.

    Inspirational poem. You can feel the love a dad has with his little girl and the elation and joy that goes on in a dad's mind when he gets that opportunity to dance with his little girl (Report) Reply

    Cute and enjoyable. Read mine - Enfant Gate - It is a little girl turning from six to seven, but you got that, didn't you?

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
