Babies Are Angels - Author Unknown

Babies are angels that fly to the earth

Their wings disappear at the time of their birth

One look in their eyes and we're never the same

They're part of us now and that part has a name

Untitled 1

Baby, I lie and gaze on thee

All other things forgot-

In dreams the things of earth pass by

But awake i heed them not.

I hear thy soft breath come and go,

Thy breath so lately given,

And watch the blue unconscious eyes

Whose light is pure from heaven.

Anonymous c.1860

Untitled 2 - Suitable for Adoption

Not flesh of my flesh

Nor bone of my bone

But still miraculously my own.

Never forget for a single minute

You didn't grow under my heart,

But in it.

To add to your lives more joys and more pleasure

Poems for Birth Announcements

The arrival of a baby is filled with happiness. Parents spend months finding the right name, picking out the right nursery furniture, deciding whether to bottle feed or breast feed, and when the baby finally arrives he or she is ready to let the world know it. Today, birth announcements are often sent by grandparents, and if it is a second or third birth, they can be sent by older siblings.

Within these announcements and poems babies are often called terms like:

  • Angel of love
  • Blessing
  • Delight
  • Gift
  • Miracle

Some people even create their own poem to make the special announcement. If you're not that creative, there are plenty of resources to help you locate the words that convey the delight, pride and gratitude you feel.

Keeping a Book of Poems

As you find those special poems that touch the heart, you can copy them into a journal to give to your baby he or she is grown. If you date them, and keep up with the journal, it will make a fine gift when your child is old enough to appreciate it as it marks his or her advancements in life through poetry.
