~~ a multiple stanza quindecim
I A parent gives name to a newborn child hoping for temperament low-key and mild. Impossible to foresee the path trod, they--two--prayerfully implore most high God: Watch over and keep him on the right track; when in smelting fire, please hold to his back. Help him to learn the pathway he should choose with plenty of room and nothing to lose so long as he looks for the Lighted Path and seeks to help others avoid God's wrath. When he grows weary give lift to his wings, replenish his strength, give voice as he sings. Help him tune in to your heavenly voice; as he ponders the way, then makes his choice give mom and dad a vision to rejoice.
