a noble prayer

Added by: rufusmcc
The poem is an earnest wish of the poet to God to preserve his baby daughter and to nurture her with all the good qualities. each stanza is a prayer for one noble quality, and the poet is very modest in his prayer for his daugher, which speaks of his noble purpose and exalted aim for his daughter's future with a strife torn world as a backdrop.
