The New Born Child
Watching the new born infant is such a wonderful feeling
Looking at its innocent eyes sends anyone’s senses reeling
It’s a time of life when there are no cares, no worries and no fuss
The child is initiated into the fold to become part of us.
Relatives pour in irrespective of it’s a girl or boy
Each one bringing cash, clothes or toys.
The elders all bless the child with long years
The little infant is blissful and has no fears.
The child smiles happily after a feed of milk
Such supple skin, it feels like silk
The baby willingly gives you a smile
