Here you will find the Poem Fatherless of poet Lesbia Harford
I've had no man To guard and shelter me, Guide and instruct me From mine infancy. No lord of earth To show me day by day What things a girl should do And what she should say. I have gone free Of manly excellence And hold their wisdom More than half pretence. For since no male Has ruled me or has fed, I think my own thoughts In my woman's head.
