Why does "моей дочери друзья" not work?

[deactivated user]

    When a noun or a nominal construction modifies another noun, the modifier normally follows the main noun.

    «Моей дочери друзья» could work if you were writing a poem... But I don't think it'd fit any meter of the accentual-syllabic verse. :)


    I am not a native, but this sounds super unnatural to me. (I'm fluent in Russian and lived there for a while)


    Подруги моей дочки?
