Come Back
(A Father's Advice to His Daughters)

You must go out amongst them.
Only in the world may you find
Answers to questions you ask yourself.

When you've conquered all, daughters three,
When you have shown them all you can be.
Come home again to visit thee with me.

Bring with you grandchildren you have raised
Better than you were. Grandchildren for play
While scant patience lasts inside one who aged.
In them your love; a glimpse of immortality.

So while males sleep late, late get up to roar,
Go kill for us, then stand aside while we feast.
Do what you have for then, now, and evermore.
Tell us strong we are, but always tame the beast.
