A Father's Example (The Wild Boar's Example)
There are little eyes upon you,
And they're watching night and day:
There are little ears that listen
To every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
To do the things you do;
And a little daughter who's dreaming
Of the day she'll be like you.
You're the little girls idol,
You're the wisest of the wise;
In her little mind, about you
No suspicions ever rise.
She believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do
She will say and do in your way
When she's all grown up just like you.
There's a wide-eyed little girl
Who believes you're always right;
And her ears are always open
As she watches day and night.
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do,
For the little girl who's waiting
To grow up just like you.
Edgar A. Guest (some liberties taken)
One of Aunt Polly's favorites
