Poems, Volume II by Florence Earle Coates
Father

FATHER

HOW should I dream but you were old
 Who seemed so strangely wise?
The truth, had I the truth been told,
 Had filled me with surprise;
But now that you are gone, alas!
 Beyond Death's voiceless sea,
Still, as your birthdays come and pass,
 You younger grow to me.
