Tuesday's Miracle

"A rest in rotten row" 
1892 watercolour by Rose Maynard Barton (1856 - 1929), PD -1923

Springtime and babies—the two get along famously.  So in honor of the former, today's little ditty describes the latter.  Works for me. 

Tuesday’s Miracle

Five little fingers clutched around one
A smile that’s brighter than midday sun
A dear little face with sparkling eyes
A miracle dressed in a baby’s disguise

  1. I love, love, love you baby poem, Michelle! Babies are my favorite people and miracles. =)

    1. Thank you, Bridget-- I'm so glad you liked it! I'm rather partial to babies, myself. :)

  2. I love the idea of a baby disguise.
