      Oh my daughter !

      You are leaving the home in which you were brought up for
       a house in which you brought up for
       a house unknown to you and to a companion unfamiliar to you.

       Be a floor to him, he will be a roof to you;
       be a soft seat to him, he will be a pillar for you;
       and be like a slave girl to him and he will be a slave boy to you.

       Avoid inopportune behaviour, least he should be bored with you;
       and be not aloof lest he should become indifferent to you.
       If he approaches you, come running to him;
       and if he turns away, do not impose yourself upon him.

       Take care of his nose, his eye and his ear.
       Let him not smell except a good odour from you;
       let not his eye see you except in an agreeable appearance;
       and let him hear nothing from you except nice, fine words.

        -Your mom-
