To The First Born - Poem by Louisa May Alcott

WELCOME, welcome, little stranger,
Fear no harm, and fear no danger;
We are glad to see you here,
For you sing 'Sweet Spring is near.'

Now the white snow melts away;
Now the flowers blossom gay:
Come dear bird and build your nest,
For we love our robin best.

    This verse possesses a very sweet naivety. Also the title stands alone as a greeting to a first born child giving the baby security and a salutation of optimism. The carefree earlier days in USA. (Report) Reply
