Short Baby Poems
Poet: Herbert Hoover
Children are the most wholesome part of the race,
the sweetest, for they are the freshest from the Hand of God.
Whimsical, ingenious, mischievous,
they fill the earth with joy and good humor.
We adults live a life of apprehension to what they think of us;
a life of defense against their terrifying energy;
a life of hard work to live up to their great expectations.
We put them to bed with a sense of relief -
and greet them in the morning with delight and anticipation.
We envy them the freshness of adventure and the discovery of life.
In all these ways, children add to the wonder of being alive.
Giving birth to a baby is easier than worrying about it.
Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving.
A baby is God's opinion that life should go on.
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3 (NLT)
