Baby


With one single push,
With one couple's love,
A baby is born.

With one gasping breath,
With one cry for mom,
A baby enters the world.

With one pair of loving hands,
With one rock and one coo,
A baby is loved.

With one house to stay,
With one mom and dad to love,
A baby has a home.

With one encouragement,
With one smile and clap,
A baby takes its first step.

With one heart to love,
With one brain to learn,
A baby grows up.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
