BABIES COME INTO THIS WORLD
Babies come into the world brand new
They have no preconceived notions of
bottles and you
Expecting love and giving it back,
These little Angels see nothing you lack.
They don't know when you're wondering if
what you're doing is right
Happiness comes from having you in sight.
Don't worry your skills are shaky and new
Your baby just wants you to be you.
Feedings and diapers and car seats won't last
The love that you show to your child says it best
Take care of this little gift from above
and everything is seen through her and your love.
BABIES DON'T KEEP
Mother, oh Mother,
come shake out your cloth,
empty the dustpan,
poison the moth,
hang out the washing
and butter the bread,
sew on a button and make up a bed.
Where is the mother whose house
is so shocking?
She's up in the nursery,
Oh, I've grown shiftless as Little
Boy Blue (lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
(pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo).
The shopping's not done
and there's nothing for stew
and out in the yard there's a hullabaloo
but I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue?
(lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
The cleaning and scrubbing
will wait till tomorrow,
for Children grow up,
as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs.
Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep......

Sometimes, short baby shower poems
can be used as the theme for the
entire shower. You might use the
poem on the invitations and the
cake, and you might even produce
a keepsake book for the mom-to-be
using the poem on the cover.
If the poem is appropriate, you
could even embroider it on a sampler
as your gift.
Remember that baby shower poems don’t
have to be elaborate. Short and
catchy are traits more likely to be remembered and it doesn’t even have
to be especially poetic. You’ll get
lots of laughs with your baby shower
gift poem that indicates the contents
of the package by saying, “I bought
you a bonnet to make baby coo, and
I bought you some diapers for the
other end too!”
As you search for a baby shower
gift poem, keep in mind the
personality of the mom-to-be.
Is she more likely to be moved
by something soft and sentimental?
Or will humor be just what she needs?
The mom-to-be can also find some
creative uses for poetry.
Baby shower thank you poems will help express just how much the
thoughtfulness of the giver meant.
Writing your own baby shower poems
will allow you to make unique cards
to send as thank you notes.

Here is a cute baby shower thank you poem...
Thank you for coming,
Holding me dear,
Although I'm not born yet,
Nor made myself clear.
Know that I know what
Your gifts want to say,
Older than sunshine
Upon a new day.

Can You Create Genius in a Baby?
Many think that people making a living
through their writing of books or poetry
are geniuses - but genius is a difficult
thing to put your finger on - as to where
it came from.
One thing has been commented on in many places,
and that is, babies and children have the
greatest ability to learn and create before
six years of age. If you want to give a baby
a chance at genius in writing or anything else -
I can't think of a better program than this to give your baby the best start and have fun at the same time!
