The Prodigal Daughter As I've read the story of the prodigal son, I've often wondered what net Father would have thought and said and done If he'd had a prodigal daughter. Would he have gone far down the road His arms out wide extended To welcome his erring daughter home Though she had much offended? Would he have ordered his servants in her behalf To go quickly and kill the fatted calf? Would he have ordered for her a bounteous feast, At Which she as guest should not be least? Or would he have done as some fathers do now With anger in his heart and a frown on his brow Ordered her back from whence she came, To lead, perhaps a life of shame, Because somebody's son had tarnished her name? Oh! fathers; oh mothers! are^ons more worth Than daughters are upon this earth? What said the Christ on that summer's day To the woman who sat by the side of the way, When the men who had scorned her had gone away, Knowing that she was no worse than they. If the son could sin and be forgiven, Why should the daughter from home be driven? How many of us I wonder, down deep In his heart Hasn't some 1 sin with which he'd gladly part. Why cannnot we say as was said of yore, Go thy way and sin no more. • I'd rather stand with the daughter When judged by the great Judge above, The son sinned because he wanted to sin, The daughter because of her love. —C.
