I Said To My Son - Poem by Jerusalmi Streete

I said to my son:
be romantic man. Be chivalrous and kind,
and cherish that one. That same little lady,
you shall take to romance. Be a little father,
and a respectful man. Teach her the part,
and bound her to your heart. Act gallant and decent,
and care for her thoughts. Stick with her forever,
and let it stay that way
because my blessings go with thee...
Forever as I pray
