By M. (Marilyn) Robinson
The sun came up this morning
It’s promise sweet and long
A new child shares this day with me
The birds begin their songs.
A special gift of squares and strips
Was sewn for baby’s cover
The sparkling patches quite reflect
Our feeling for each other.
The beauty of the days ahead
Are sewn in every seam.I’ll wrap you up and hold you tight
And anticipate the dream.
