Baby Lying Down


By Josie Whitehead

Winter Born Baby

Winter winds roar through leafless trees -
     So quietly you entered our world.
Snowflakes fall silently on a winter breeze -
      In your mother’s arms you lay curled.

Little eyes closed in your baby dreams;
     Baby soft hair on your head;
Soft little hands, not hardened by work,  –
     Sleep on in your cradle bed.

Winter-born baby, today’s your first day
      In a world you don’t yet comprehend.
Bring to that world your love and your joy,
      From this day forth to to the end.
