Girlhood is the opening flower of womanhood.
It has charms all its own.
The wonderful blossoming of young, healthy girlhood,
will ever be God’s great miracle in life’s garden.
Girlhood is like a half-open rose.
We are charmed,
both by the beauty of the bud and by the wonderful coloring of the rose.
We behold the familiar traits of childhood
that have always charmed us and held our affections,
but blended with these in ever changing variety
are the graces and powers of womanhood.
