Verse from the hymn ' I would be true,'
Howard Arnold Walker reproduced with permission.

This poem was given to my husband by Cathy on the 1st April, 1976, a month prior to her eleventh birthday. Although it was published in 'Tomorrow's Dawn', I am including it again in 'Day By Day', photo copied from Cathy's letter. The original author was unknown to me at the time of writing 'Tomorrow's Dawn' and my neglect to acknowledge same upset some readers, when 'To Daddy My Creed' was written in a review. I don't know where Cathy saw the hymn; that the words are not her own makes no difference. She chose them as her creed.
