# A Baby's Chat [ In Top 500]

a baby's chat goes on and on
it does not stop it with it's mom
a dog in the street
a leaf or a flower
a chirruping bird
an ant or a butterfly
the moon in the sky
a baby's chat goes on and on

with everything under the sun

may be the moon winks back
the dog we see surely wags back
leafs flowers birds too may speak back
a language of theirs the baby has
all of us did speak it once
a text or scripture of it we have none
a unique one it is each one's
a baby's chat goes on and on

with everything under the sun

the mother deciphers most of what it is
the baby learns quicker than the mother does
the mother's sweet language
to chat with the mother it's eagerness

    A beautiful poem that speaks of a baby's chat, innocent like a flower, as green as a leaf, as pretty as a butterfly or bird - a unique poem that casts a spell. Thank you Samanyan for sharing such a delightful poem.

    It's true. You can have the grandest conversations with babies or even small children about nothing at all. But, in the end, it's worth every moment. Thanks for sharing.

    A baby's language is inexplicable, not decipherable to anyone except mother.But everyone enjoy's the divine pleasure of communicating with the baby or just listening to the baby.Also the baby doesn't have any dearth of topics to speak on, as the poet says anything under the sun.

    Wonderfully expressed by the poet, putting his feet into the shoes of a baby.

    Babies are special…their looks…their smiles…their croons…everything. Their twitter is equally special – it has an idyllic music about it. You’ve with beautiful imagery, captured the fascinating scene of the nascent. # 10.

    a text or scripture of it we have in memory...i think thats what it should be. As we do recall distant memory of those little words and expression and impressions. A beautiful poem
