A daughter


A daughter is a daughter,
With all past, present and future
A daughter has all virtues-
Pretty, amiable and intelligent.
Adorned with all good traits
A daughter lacks nothing,
As she has with her unfailing love
Devoid of merits, free from pride
Unconcerned and free from doubts.
A daughter is a daughter
With the qualities of a father and a mother,
Daughter is the best process-server.

    In fact the daughter is the mother of human beings and affection to daughter to the parents is the most respected emotions of human beings. I think that poet took the subject for the poem in a best sense of responsibility of love and affection towards the daughters of world allover and I respect the sentiment and the poem itself is very nice.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
