'Baby Dreams'


Full moon’s beaming
What is baby dreaming?
Of sweet little sonnets,
Blue baby bonnets,
Trinkets and toys,
Kisses and boys,
Fairies and wings,
Shiny, diamond rings,
Red floating kites,
Tinker Bell and Snow White,
Angels on clouds glowing,
Trees buried in winter’s snowing,
Princesses in their gowns,
Princes in their crowns,
Polka dotted umbrellas,
A shoe and Cinderella,
Little girls as they play,
Toys on the sleigh,
Sitting on Santa’s knee,
Ornaments on the tree,
Decorations in the grove,
Gingerbread men in the stove,
Jesus in his stable,
Cookies and milk on the table,
Elves as they pose,
Rudolph’s old shiny nose,
Carolers in their attire,
Stockings above the fire,
You are tucked cozy in the bed,
Dreams dance in your head,
The full moon is beaming,
Baby, what are you dreaming?

    Such an enjoyable poem to read! When my daughter was a baby I used to love to watch her sleep and as I'd see the little eyes moving under their closed lids, I would have these same thoughts! What is she dreaming about? You've come up with a list of so many things that relate to a child's life. Beautifully written poem! (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
