Baby Shower Poems – Express Yourself or Play a Game

Quote....A baby is an angel whose wings decrease as his legs increase. Unknown author

Did you ever write a baby poem? or do you know of a great baby poem? We'd love to add it here. Go to poem invitation There are some interesting things you can do with them and many places to find poems that can be used.

Baby shower invitations are one source of baby shower poems.

You can find them on cards in retail stores, but there are also plenty of poems available on computer programs for designing cards on your home computer.

Of course, the more talented writers will want to create their poems and a baby shower gift poem on a handmade card makes a great topper for a handmade gift.

There are also many baby poems in the Public Domain. (This means they no longer have a copyright and are free to use.) Here's a couple I think are beautiful.


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.


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,

blissfully rocking.

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.

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!
