Who is anonymous father?

Famous quotes containing the words anonymous father, father and/or anonymous:

    No one ever promised me it would be easy and it’s not. But I also get many rewards from seeing my children grow, make strong decisions for themselves, and set out on their own as independent, strong, likeable human beings. And I like who I am becoming, too. Having teenagers has made me more human, more flexible, more humble, more questioning—and, finally it’s given me a better sense of humor!
    Anonymous Father. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, ch. 4 (1978)

    “O haud your tongue, my father dear,
    An’ dinna grieve your Sarah;
    A better lord was never born
    Than him I lost on Yarrow.
    —Unknown. The Dowie Houms o’ Yarrow (l. 53–56)

    I know you not, this room never,
    the swollen dress I wear,
    nor the anonymous spoons that free me,
    nor this calendar nor the pulse we pare and cover.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
