Proud Father

A child was born today,
But so was a father;
The father gathers round him
New responsibilities
And envisions future years
When she will grow to be
His special star,
His daughter.

Jerusalem, General J
And all the rest,
Redeemed today,
After thirty-nine of troubled seas
Upon the soles of tiny feet
And tiny fingers outstretched wide
The captive sailor gazes homeward
Freed at last by filial bonds.
