To A New-Born Child By Cosmo Monkhouse

To A New-Born Child By Cosmo Monkhouse Small traveler from an unseen shore, By mortal eye ne’er seen before, To you, good-morrow. You are as fair a little dame As ever from a glad world came To one of sorrow. We smile above you, but you fret; We call you gentle names, and yet Your […]

To A New-Born Baby Girl By Grace Hazard Conkling

To A New-Born Baby Girl By Grace Hazard Conkling And did thy sapphire shallop slip Its moorings suddenly, to dip Adown the clear, ethereal sea From star to star, all silently?

We do this often, […]

Little Hands By Laurence Binyon

Little Hands By Laurence Binyon Soft little hands that stray and clutch, Like fern fronds curl and uncurl bold, While baby faces lie in such Close sleep as flowers at night that fold, What is it you would, clasp and hold, Wandering outstretched with wilful touch? O fingers small of shell-tipped rose, How should you […]

Etude Realiste By Algernon Charles Swinburne

Etude Realiste By Algernon Charles Swinburne I A baby’s feet, like seashells pink, Might tempt, should heaven see meet, An angel’s lips to kiss, we think, A baby’s feet. Like rose-hued sea-flowers toward the heat They stretch and spread and wink Their ten soft buds that part and meet. No flower-bells that expand and shrink […]

All On Account Of The Baby By Amos Russel Wells

All On Account Of The Baby By Amos Russel Wells An ache in the back and an ache in the arms, All on account of the baby. A fear and a fright and a thousand alarms, All on account of the baby. And bottles and rattles and whistles and rings, From cellar to attic a […]

Baby By George Macdonald

Baby By George Macdonald Where did you come from, baby dear? Out of the everywhere into the here. Where did you get those eyes so blue? Out of the sky as I came through. What makes the light in them sparkle and spin? Some of the starry spikes left in. Where did you get that […]
