Increased reverence a soul will reap
Witnessing the symphony of baby asleep
No touch! No talk! A length’s gaze will do
For just a moment take in the view:
Such slumbering sweetness to behold
Puts all thoughts of trivia on hold
A radiant bundle in a package of time
That connecting pause to something sublime
Not manifested in the name or clothes
Is the glory in tiny fingers and toes
Invisible breath in a dreamy hush
Uncaptured by photo or artist’s brush
Born to a pauper or a wealthy prince
Captivating is any baby’s innocence
Matters not whose the baby may be
Are not little ones the pulse of society?
With no higher honor are we blessed
So savor the presence of each little guest
A confirmation is each precious soul
Erasing doubt of a Creator’s role.
