THE WAY THE BABY WOKE, by JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY Poet's Biography
First Line: And this is the way the baby woke
Last Line: And this is the way the baby woke.
Alternate Author Name(s): Johnson Of Boone, Benj. F.
Subject(s): Babies; Infants
AND this is the way the baby woke:
As when in deepest drops of dew
The shine and shadows sink and soak,
The sweet eyes glimmered through and through;
And eddyings and dimples broke
About the lips, and no one knew
Or could divine the words they spoke, --
And this is the way the baby woke.
