Sweet daughter, when your eyes behold the parchment
And its concepts flood your gates
When its complexity warms your sentiment
And its fullness refuses to abate

Then, and only then, take your quivered quill to your side
And let it be filled with warmth and talent tonic—
Let it rush from your heart as Mercuric melodies rise
And be not swayed by the mechanics that come from it.

For the pen that’s dipped in the best of ink and thought
Is not master to the mind from whence the tonic flows
It is not sold or borrowed or lent or even bought
For it is the muse of your soul that truly knows…

Your heart, my daughter, is master of all.

Steaven, this is a true treasure!  I hope you won't mind if I send a copy to my daughter (who is abbymatilda here on PIP).  A poem of such quality as this should be framed and put on the wall!   ...jo

I think every father's daughter
who deems it their need to write,
would appreciate such sentiment
from someone who loves enough to know
her best.

Steaven, this is a wonderfully warm write. I hope she cherishes both the quill and her father's love.

Awesome encouragement for any child.  The truth of it resonates with me.

We should all have such treasures from our fathers. What a blessed child.

I appreciate the more than kind comments from everyone...she's away at college and has joined piptalk, but she hasn't published anything here yet...this was just an encouragement to her to post something...anything...again thanks for the nice commments.
