I Wonder
Greta Zwaan, © 1981


I wonder little one, who you will be
As I feel you wriggle inside of me.
The turbulent surges of joy that I sense,
The feeling of awe while I’m bound in suspense.

Will your hair be curly? Will your eyes be blue?
When you come, will my world revolve around you?
Will you bring us the joy that others speak of?
Will our lives be filled with even more love?

Do I dress you in jeans or wee pinafores?
Will I teach you to bake or will you help do the chores?
I’m longing to hold your wee hand inside mine,
To teach you, to train you, to mold a design.

Ten little fingers and ten little toes,
A sweet little dimple, and a cherub, pert nose.
Your daddy is anxious, he keeps watching me,
He’s protecting his interest, each inch and degree.

I don’t know how long he is willing to wait,
But he’s frequently saying, “I hope it’s not late."
So, dear little infant, our pride and our joy,
Won’t you plan to come quickly? Be you girl, be you boy.

I’m counting the days now until you arrive,
My bundle of blessing; my form so alive!
Our hearts have a welcome, our home is prepared,
As soon as you enter our lives will be shared.

Our Baby Boy
Poet: C. C. Hassler


Here's to the laughing Baby Boy.
The boy with the dark blue eyes;
Whose smile is as sweet as the sunbeam bright
As it drops from the sun-lit skies.

Here's to the laughing romping boy,
That leaps to your arms as pure
As the lily that blooms in the garden of love
And rests in your arms secure.

Here's to the happy loving boy,
A comfort the whole day long —
And goes to rest like the birds at night
As he carrolls his sleepy song.

Here's to the fair cheeked winsome boy,
Who laughs through his baby eyes,
And cuddles up close as he dreams and sleeps
To the sound of sweet lulla-bys.

Mother's Darling
Poet: Poet: Mary Mapes Dodge


Two little girls are better than one;
Two little boys can double the fun;
Two little birds can build a fine nest;
Two little arms can love mother best.

Two little ponies must go to a span;
Two little pockets has my little man;
Two little eyes to open and close;
Two little ears and one little nose.

Two little elbows, dimpled and sweet;
Two little shoes on two little feet;
Two Uttle lips and one little chin;
Two little cheeks with roses set in.

Two little shoulders, chubby and strong;
Two little legs running all the day long;
Two little prayers does my darling say;
Twice does he kneel by my side each day.

Two little folded hands, soft and brown;
Two little eyelids cast meekly down;
And two little angels guard him in bed;
One at the foot, and one at the head.
