Tired hands so worn, so white.
Sewing and mending from morn to
Tired hands and eyes that blink,
Drooping head, too tired to think.
Tired arms, that once had pressed
A curly head to a mother s breast.
Tired voice so soft, so dear,
Saying, "Sleep well, darling, mother s
Ah, those beautiful hands,
Though heart was weary and sad,
These patient hands keep toiling on,
That children may be glad.

To childhood dads.
