Subject(s): Babies; Infants


COME, see my little baby-girl -- a toddling, winsome thing,
With yellow hair in golden curl, and eyes as bright as Spring!
Two little arms, so white and neat, that fold around my neck,
And make me laugh at Wizard Fate of little Jessie's sake.

Her rosy lips -- a scarlet thread -- unclose, and lo! I see
Two pearly teeth shine through the red as white as white can be!
Her tiny -- plump -- wee -- fairy feet, encased in slippers blue,
Make music to my ear more sweet than words can ever do.

Oh, rapture rare! her lisping words lift me above my woe;
Oh! music sweeter far than birds from her quaint prattlings flow.
Come, see her in her snowy frock, and curls of sunny light,
As she her baby-doll doth rock -- my little angel bright!
