    Angel kisses
    On your feet.

    Tiny dancer
    On the wing;

  12. Cherish The Days
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    Cherish the days with your little one
    Watch them grow and enjoy the fun
    Life will present a many a stage
    As you watch and see them age.

    They are only little for a short time
    You watch them crawl and then they climb
    Then before you know it, the first step they take
    You watch them grow and make mistakes.

    There will be times when your heart will break
    You want to protect them and take away their aches
    But growing up we all go through
    Just love them and all they do.



  13. A Baby Is Like
    Poet: Unknown

    A baby's like a flower
    All soft and pink and white,
    A baby's like a sunbeam,
    All sparkly, warm and bright,
    A baby's like a bluebird
    That brings a happy song,
    And life is so much sweeter
    When a baby comes along!



  14. The Child's Appeal
    Poet: Mamie Gene Cole

    I am the child.
    All the world waits for my coming.

    All the earth watches with interest to
    see what I shall become.
    Civilization hangs in the balance,
    For what I am, the world of tomorrow will be.

    I am the child.
    I have come into your world about
    which I know nothing,
    Why I came I know not;
    How I came I know not.
    I am curious, I'm interested.

    I am the child.
    You hold in your hands my destiny.
    You determine largely whether
    I shall succeed or fail.

    Give me, I pray you,
    those things that make for happiness.
    Train me, I beg you,
    that I may be a blessing to the world.



  15. The Baby
    Poet: Unknown

    There bloomed in the garden of Paradise
    Two violet buds for the darling's eyes.

    A rosebud touched her lips one day
    And ripe, red kisses bloomed straightway.

    A cloud lamb brushed her cheeks one night
    And left them tender and soft and white.

    The sea the sweet little secret hears
    And gives two tiny, pink shells for ears.

    The breezes came in delicate whirls
    And twisted her hair into dainty curls.

    Then the fairies brought little hands and feet
    And the dainty, wee maiden was quite complete.

    The gate of Heaven was open one day
    And to earth the little one ran away.



  16. Boy or Girl?
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    Some folks pray for a boy, and some
    For a golden-haired little girl to come.
    Some claim to think there is more of joy
    Wrapped up in the smile of a little boy,
    While others pretend that the silky curls
    And plump, pink cheeks of the little girls
    Bring more of bliss to the old home place
    Than a small boy's queer little freckled face.

    Now which is better, I couldn't say
    If the Lord should ask me to choose to-day;
    If He should put in a call for me
    And say: " Now what shall your order be,
    A boy or girl? I have both in store —
    Which of the two are you waiting for?"
    I'd say with one of my broadest grins:
    Send either one, if it can't be twins.

    I've heard it said, to some people's shame,
    They cried with grief when a small boy came,
    For they wanted a girl. And some folks I know
    Who wanted a boy, just took on so
    When a girl was sent. But it seems to me
    That mothers and fathers should happy be
    To think, when the Stork has come and gone,
    That the Lord would trust them with either one.

    Boy or girl? There can be no choice;
    There's something lovely in either voice.
    And all that I ask of the Lord to do
    Is to see that the mother comes safely through
    And guard the baby and have it well,
    With a perfect form and a healthy yell,
    And a pair of eyes and a shock of hair.
    Then, boy or girl — and its dad won't care.



  17. Baby Child
    Poet: Edna Allen Exchenback

    Down in the valley of shadow we go,
    How far in those depths, we never know,
    Months of waiting, hours of pain,
    Then it’s over, we’re smiling again.

    A kiss from the Daddy and to see his proud smile,
    Then to hold in your arms your own baby child,
    That’s Heaven, that only a Mother can know.
    And it’s worth all the suffering thru which we must go.

    Oh the mighty strength of those wee baby hands,
    That clasp two hearts together like iron bands,
    Those dear little arms two hearts will entwine
    With a love that’s so sacred it’s almost divine.

    Have you ever wondered, if it is really worthwhile,
    To hold in your arms your own baby child?
    My dear I will tell you - if I had my choice
    Of some wonderful talent, a beautiful voice,

    A gorgeous home with enormous wealth,
    Together with these I’d have strength and health,
    But in order to have them it must be understood
    That I’d be denied the joy of Motherhood.

    Oh I might have been tempted, had I never been blest
    With the joys of clasping a babe to my breast,
    I might have been tempted, had I not known the bliss
    Of a baby’s arms and a baby’s kiss.

    For each new babe gets the same tender care,
    When another one comes, there is more love to spare.
    We may want a daughter and receive a little son,
    But we’re happy and contented when all is said and done.

    In this world of ours, no home is complete,
    That has not known the patter of little feet.
    And no woman can give to this world her best,
    Until with Motherhood her life is blest.
