Morals and Manners

At SPHS, we had a “Morals and Manners” class for students who are not Catholics. We learned some poems from the book.

The following is a modernized version of the poem which used “Thou”, “Thee” and “Locks”.

Be kind to your father — for when you were young
Who loved you as fondly as he
He caught the first accent that fell from your tongue
And joined in the heavenly glee.

Be kind to your father — for now he is old
His hair intermingled with grey
His footsteps are feeble, once fearless and bold
Your father is passing away.
