Wishes for a child poem
March 29, 2019 Anniversary Wishes No comments

What's in a name? The answer is loads of good wishes when you give a child his or her own name poem. Each poem is custom-written and uses the letters in.

For naming Ceremonies, I have indexed and collated, well over 150 poems and readings,  spread over 65 pages,  in 30 or so categories, that are all in alphabetical order.

Love, Inspiration, Guidance, Joy, Blessing,
Here to inspire or to simply enjoy.

You will find beautiful poems and readings for both Religious and Secular (non-religious) Naming Ceremonies, and I add more as I find or write them.

I work with the parent’s to select a poem or reading (which may or may not be listed), that is specific and indicative of the bundle of joy so if you have one that you like and if it is not here, please let me know so that I can add it.

Some are my own originals. Others have been chosen but love has a language of its own and so if you don’t find something on this page, try any of these links:

To find a reading or poem, try the index or just press CTRL F on your keyboard and search for a key word or subject.

You might also fins something on my blog, or my Facebook page, though you could always write your own, and it could go into the list;
but If you don’t find what you want here, let me know.

NB: As an AFCC Member I have copyright exemption for Ceremonies but the author must always by cited and this collation holds its own copyright 2017.

ADVICE

A Child learns what he lives

If a child lives with criticism
he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility
he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule
he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame
he learns to feel guilt.

BUT,
If a child lives with tolerance
he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement
he learns confidence.
If a child lives with fairness
he learns justice.
If a child lives with security
he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval
he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship
he learns to find love in the world.

Advice to My Child on Growing Up in Life

by Larry. S. Chengges

You are unique, my child…. a wonderful addition to life for there is no one else like you.
You are important…believe it….know it.
Search your heart and be willing to try new things….Don’t be afraid to be different… follow your feelings and be proud..…be happy.
Reflect your feelings, your hopes and your dreams…. You have much to contribute and other people can learn from you.

Take your time… and please, don’t hurry.
You must reach out and help others to grow… for the more you give, the more you receive.
Your time on earth is a measure of progress, year by year… For each year will present new and different opportunities…
Enjoy what is beautiful, my child, and try to achieve the highest goals in life… to love, to care, to give, to share.

Always Believe In Yourself

by Susan Polis Schultz

Get to know yourself –
What you can do and what you cannot do –
For only you can make your life happy.

Believe that by working, learning and achieving
You can reach your goals
And be successful.

Believe in your own creativity
As a means of expressing
Your true feelings.

Believe in appreciating life.
Be sure to have fun everyday
And to enjoy the beauty in the world.

Believe in love.
Love your friends, your family,
Yourself and your life.

Believe in your dreams
And your dreams can become reality

BABIES

A Baby will…

By Author Unknown

A baby will make love stronger
Days shorter, Nights longer
Bankroll smaller, Clothes shabbier,
The past forgotten,
And the future worth living for.

A Baby’s Feet

by  Algernon Charles Swinburne

A baby’s feet, like sea shells pink,
Might tempt, should heaven see meet
An angel’s lips to kiss, we think,
A baby’s feet.

Like rose-hued sea flowers toward the heat
They stretch and spread and wink
Their ten soft buds that part and meet.

No flower bells that expand and shrink
Gleam half so heavenly sweet,
As shine on life’s untrodden brink
A baby’s feet.

A Mother’s Wish

By Author Unknown

I hope my child looks back on today
And sees a mother who had time to play.
There will be years for cleaning and cooking,
But children grow up when you’re not looking.
Tomorrow I’ll do all the chores you can mention
But today, my baby needs time and attention.
So settle down cobwebs; dust go to sleep,
I’m cuddling my baby, and babies don’t keep.

A Natural High

What else could bring you so much joy,
As the arrival of your baby boy!
His snuggly charms now capture you;
He’s in your thoughts in all you do.
Nothing can fill you so full of glee,
As bouncing your little boy on your knee.
His precious antics please mum and dad;
He’s a bundle of blessings, this little lad!
His boyish grin enchants everyone;
He’s just what you wanted – your boy, your son.
A baby boy is a natural high,
So have lots of fun with your little guy.

Baby’s Feet

By author unknown

Someday I’ll jump through puddles,
Take a stroll or run a race.
Someday I’ll walk across the street
Or maybe walk in space.
Someday I’ll scale a mountain
Or I’ll join the ballet corps.
Someday I’ll walk a tightrope
Or explore the ocean floor.
Someday these feet will do some things
That only heaven knows
But for today they’re happy
Just to wiggle their toes!

Being Small

By John Maguire

Sometimes I just hate being small,
When everybody else is tall,
I think the world is most unfair
With me down here and them up there.

It’s awful when a juicy peach
Is in a bowl far out of reach
Or parents have safely put away
The toys with which I want to play.

It’s terrible to have to stretch
For everything you want to fetch
While bigger people help themselves
To things from off the highest shelves.

Perhaps it might be less unfair
If they were kind of stuck up there
And had to wait till I came round
To give them things from off the ground;

But no, they can easily bend,
To fetch and carry, make and mend,
While if I want to reach that cup,
I have no way of bending up!

From the Start

By Author unknown

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You’re part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

I’d daydream of the things we’d share,
Like late-night bottles and Teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC’s.
I thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I thought of lessons I’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.

Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes;
I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper, “I love you” every night.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journeys begin,
My heart’s yours forever little one.

I Am Special

By Author Unknown

I am so very special
I have been from the start
Before they held me in their arms
My family held me in their hearts
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall
My life and love will ripples make
And touch the lives of all
So read this precious story
As step by step I grow
I am a special blessing and a gift
As each page here will show.

New Baby Poem

By Author Unknown

The day has finally come, the pain begins to reel
You never could imagine, just how this would feel!
Then when it’s all over, and there’s finally peace
There’s this incessant crying, that doesn’t seem to cease!
In between the whining, you try to catch a wink
But once again the wailing starts, so loud you cannot think!
Here’s this precious bundle, that fills your heart with joy
Lying there so tranquilly, watch out he’s being coy!
As soon as you sit down to eat, it’s hungry he will be
And while your food grows cold and hard, he’ll be spitting peas!
Now the day’s so beautiful, you put him in his buggy
Suddenly you smell that smell, you best take stock in Huggies!
All of this is normal, but watch for what’s ahead
‘Cause it’s when he gets older, that you should fear and dread!

On the night you were born

by Nancy Tilman.

The moon smiled with such wonder
That the stars peeked in to see you
And the night wind whispered,
“Life will never be the same.”
Because there had never been anyone like you…ever in the world.
So enchanted with you were the wind and the rain
That they whispered the sound of your wonderful name.
It sailed through the farmland
High on the breeze…
Over the ocean…
And through the trees…
Until everyone heard it
And everyone knew
Of the one and only ever you.
Not once had there been such eyes,
Such a nose,
Such silly, wiggly, wonderful toes.
When the polar bears heard,
They danced until dawn.
From faraway places,
The geese flew home.
The moon stayed up until
Morning next day.
And none of the ladybugs flew away.
So whenever you doubt just how special you are
And you wonder who loves you, how much and how far,
Listen for geese honking high in the sky.
(They’re singing a song to remember you by.)
Or notice the bears asleep at the zoo.
(It’s because they’ve been dancing all night for you!)
Or drift off to sleep to the sound of the wind.
(Listen closely…it’s whispering your name again!)
If the moon stays up until morning one day,
Or a ladybug lands and decides to stay,
Or a little bird sits at your window awhile,
It’s because they’re all hoping to see you smile…
For never before in story or rhyme
(not even once upon a time)
Has the world ever known a you, my friend,
And it never will, not ever again…
Heaven blew every trumpet
And played every horn
On the wonderful, marvellous
Night you were born.”

Through Baby’s Eyes

By Author Unknown

I didn’t expect a brass band,
With welcome mat unfurled.
To be on hand when I arrived,
In this confusing world.
Nor did I expect a doctor;
To hold me by the feet,
Then quickly turn me upside down,
And spank me on the seat.
At first I wasn’t quite prepared,
For this enormous place,
Nor for the funny characters,
That I would have to face.
But soon I learned to get my way,
By looking sweet and shy,
And when I wanted to be held,
To make a fuss and cry.
I’ve found it really doesn’t take,
Much difficulty or guile.
To wrap them round my finger;
All I need to do is smile.

You are the Poem

Author unknown

You are the poem
I dreamed of writing,
The masterpiece
I longed to paint.
You are the shining star
I reached for in my ever-hopeful quest
For life fulfilled…
You are my child.
Now with all things
I am blessed.

Celtic Blessing

May the strength of the wind and the light of the sun,
The softness of the rain and the mystery of the moon
Reach you and fill you.
May beauty delight you and happiness uplift you,
May wonder fulfil you and love surround you.
May your step be steady and your arm be strong,
May your heart be peaceful and your word be true.
May you seek to learn, may you learn to live,
May you live to love, and may you love – always

Corinthians – 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong
or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all
knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I
give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain
nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is
not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in
evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always
perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they
will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy
in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a
child; I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways
behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now
I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Psalm 51:10

Create in my son a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within him.

Psalm 100

My child, never forget the things I have taught you.

Store my commands in your heart, for they will give you a long and satisfying life.

Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace; write them deep within your heart.

Then you will find favour with both God and people, and you will gain a good reputation.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.

And when the rains are over may there be clear pools of water
Made beautiful by the radiance of your light,
As when a star shines beautiful in the night,
Pointing the way for all of us.

Be compassionate and gentle, show good will to all.

God bless you …and welcome to the world.

And in Your loving way
Let Your presence gently bless

Peace be to this house

Peace be to this house
And to all who dwell in it.
Peace be to them that enter
And to them that depart.

You’ve been a special blessing,
Since the day that you arrived.
Bringing so much happiness,
And filling hearts with pride…
And now that it’s your Baptism Day,
This brings a special prayer.
That God will keep you,
In the shelter of His care.

Beautiful Boy

(Goodnight Sean, I’ll see you in the morning)
by John Lennon, Publisher: Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Universal Music Publishing Group, Downtown Music Publishing(Video/song on Youtube)

Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster’s gone
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it’s getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we’ll both just have to be patient
‘Cause it’s a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes, it’s a long way to go
But in the meantime

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it’s getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy

Darling, darling, darling

Boys…

By Author unknown

Boys are found everywhere – on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around, or jumping to.
Mothers love them,
little girls hate them,
older sisters and brothers tolerate them,
adults ignore them
and Heaven protects them.

My Baby Boy and me

By Author unknown

It’s 3 am they’re all asleep,
And no one’s here to see
as we rock slowly back and forth
My Baby Boy and me

His little head is feather light
tucked up against my chin
I hold his tiny hand in mine
and stroke his baby skin

The house about us creaks and groans
the clock hands creep around
He snuggles closer to me still
and makes his baby sounds

I love these quiet hours so much
and cherish every one
store memories up inside my heart
for lonely nights to come
All too soon he’ll be grown up
his need for Mummy gone
but until then I still have time
for kisses and for song
Time for quiet hours like this
with him cuddled in my arms
where I wish he’d always stay
protected, safe and warm

And yet I know the day will come
when this tiny little hand
will be much bigger than my own
he’ll grow to be a man

But until then he’s mine to love
with no one here to see
as we rock slowly back and forth
my Baby Boy and me

Naming Poem for Boys

Your Name

You got it from your Father
It was all he had to give
So it’s yours to cherish
As long as you may live
If you lose the watch he gave you
It can always be replaced
But a tarnish on your name, Son
Can never be erased.
It was clean the day you took it
And a worthy name to bear
When he got it from his father
There was no dishonour there
So make sure you guard it wisely
After all is said and done
You’ll be glad the name is spotless
When you give it to your Son.

What is a boy

By Author unknown

A boy is an explorer from his early days,
Who finds fun and adventure in the most surprising ways.
He’s a builder of wooden blocks,
A Climber of trees,
A teller of jokes and stories,
With a grin that sure to please

He’s a friend of little creatures,
Like puppies, frogs and bugs,
He’s a player of almost any game,
A winner of hearts and hugs.
He’s a dreamer of great dreams,
The futures hope and joy.
He’ll bring you worlds of happiness,
That wonderful little boy.

Why God Made Little Boys

By Author unknown

God made the world out of His dreams
Of magic mountains, oceans and streams,
Prairies and plans and wooded land,
Then paused and thought “I need someone to stand
On top of mountains, to conquer the seas,
Explore the plains and climb the trees.
Someone to start out small and to grow,
Sturdy, strong as a tree…” And so,
He created boys, full of spirit and fun,
To explore and conquer, to romp and run.
With dirty faces and banged up chins,
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task He’d begun
He surely said “A job well done”.

Being Small

Sometimes I just hate being small,
When everybody else is tall,
I think the world is most unfair

It’s awful when a juicy peach
Is in a bowl far out of reach
Or parents have safely put away
The toys with which I want to play.

If they were kind of stuck up there

To give them things from off the ground;

But no, they can easily bend,
To fetch and carry, make and mend,
While if I want to reach that cup,
I have no way of bending up!

Give us the spirit of the child

Give us the child who lives within – the child who trusts, the child who imagines, the child who sings, the child who receives without reservation, the child who gives without judgement.
Give us a child’s eyes, that we may receive the beauty and freshness of this day like a sunrise.
Give us a child’s ears, that we may hear the music of mythical times.
Give us a child’s heart, that we may be filled with wonder and delight.
Give us a child’s faith, that we may be cured of our cynicism.
Give us the spirit of the child, who is not afraid to need, who is not afraid to love.

Know you what it is to be a child?

By Francis Thompson & William Blake

Know you what it is to be a child? … It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, – for each child has a fairy god-mother in his/her own soul; it is to live in a nutshell and count yourself the king/queen of infinite space; it is: To see the World in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.

Know you what it is to be a child? … It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, – for each child has a fairy god-mother in his/her own soul; it is to live in a nutshell and count yourself the king/queen of infinite space; it is: To see the World in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.

May Beauty Delight You

By author unknown

May beauty delight you and happiness uplift you,
May wonder fulfill you and love surround you.
May your step be steady and your arm be strong,
May your heart be peaceful and your word be true.
May you seek to learn, may you learn to live.
May you live to love, and may you love – always

If children live with security, they learn to have faith;
If children live with approval,
they learn to like themselves;
If children live with love around them,
they learn to give love to the world.

DAD / FATHERHOOD

Footprints

Author Unknown

“Walk a little slower Daddy” said a child so small,
“I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower Daddy,
For you are leading me.
Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So walk a little slower Daddy,
For I must follow you.

Just like Dad

By Author unknown

I want to be just like my Dad
Surely that’s not all that bad.
Now I’m small and smooth and cute,
But soon I’ll be a hairy brute!
I’ll be cool and have to shave,
I’ll be tall and strong and brave!
It would make me really glad
To follow in the footsteps of my Dad
I’ve got all these things to come –
But gee – I hope I look like Mum

DESCRIPTIVE

A Natural High

What else could bring you so much joy,
As the arrival of your baby boy!
His snuggly charms now capture you;
He’s in your thoughts in all you do.
Nothing can fill you so full of glee,
As bouncing your little boy on your knee.
His precious antics please mum and dad;
He’s a bundle of blessings, this little lad!
His boyish grin enchants everyone;
He’s just what you wanted – your boy, your son.
A baby boy is a natural high,
So have lots of fun with your little guy.

DREAMS & DREAMING

A Recipe for Dreaming

By Author Unknown

Nature formed you with perfect feet and hands and a heart that beats non-stop, sometimes for a hundred years. You were made complete. You have inherited a thousand generations of wisdom, skill, poetry, song, all the sunrises and sunsets of knowledge past. You are the sum of all the people who went before you.

You are a refinery of all inherited intellectual wealth, the full flood of antecedent wisdom is piped and stored within you – how to climb the highest mountain, slay the biggest monster, how to survive fear and how to summon your own courage and take pride in your wonderful intelligence.

Inside you are more possibilities than you could possibly use up in one lifetime.

If you can dream it, you can do it, because the instinctive knowledge of how to succeed is already programmed within you waiting to be turned on, it is waiting to flow like a river as you come on stream.

Follow Your Dreams

By Author unknown

When others say “It’s hopeless and it really can’t be done.”
When they tell you “It’s all over. It’s a race that can’t be won.”
And they promise “You could spend your life just lying in the sun.”
Follow your dreams boy. Follow your dreams!

When the people you admire, but who wouldn’t understand,
Tell you “Other roads are safer. Your dreams are much too grand.”
Or the doubters and the tempters try to take you by the hand.
Follow your dreams boy. Follow your dreams!

You should listen to the counsel of the people that you trust.
But don’t be turned aside just because they might get fussed
You live the life that in your heart you know you really must.
Follow your dreams boy. Follow your dreams!

There is nothing you can’t conquer if you believe you can.
No mountains you can’t straddle, no oceans you can’t span.
Just conjure up a vision and set yourself a plan.
Follow your dreams boy. Follow your dreams!

FAMILY

A Family

By Author Unknown

A family is a place to cry, laugh and vent frustrations,
To ask for help, tease and yell,
To be touched and hugged and smiled at.
A family is people who care when you are sad,
Who love you no matter what and share your triumphs.
Who don’t expect you to be perfect,
Just growing with honesty, in your own direction.
Family is a circle
Where we learn to like ourselves
Where we learn to make good decisions, and think before we do.
Where we learn integrity and table manners,
And respect for other people.
Where we are special, and share ideas.
Where we listen and are listened to.
Where we learn the rules of life
To prepare ourselves for the world
The world is a place where anything can happen,
If we grow up in a loving family, we are ready for the world.

Children Learn What They Live

By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D. Copyright © 1972 by Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

FUNNY

Through Baby’s Eyes

By Author Unknown

I didn’t expect a brass band,
With welcome mat unfurled.
To be on hand when I arrived,
In this confusing world.
Nor did I expect a doctor;
To hold me by the feet,
Then quickly turn me upside down,
And spank me on the seat.
At first I wasn’t quite prepared,
For this enormous place,
Nor for the funny characters,
That I would have to face.
But soon I learned to get my way,
By looking sweet and shy,
And when I wanted to be held,
To make a fuss and cry.
I’ve found it really doesn’t take,
Much difficulty or guile.
To wrap them round my finger;
All I need to do is smile.

A Tribute To All Daughters

by Helen Steiner Rice

Every home should have a daughter
for there’s nothing like a girl,
To keep the world around her
in one continuous whirl….

From the moment she arrives on earth,
and on through womanhood,

A daughter is a female
who is seldom understood….
One minute she is laughing
the next she starts to cry,

Man just can’t understand her
and there’s just no use to try…..

She is soft and sweet and cuddly
but she’s also wise and smart,
She’s a wondrous combination
of a mind and brains and heart….

And even in her baby days
She’s just a born coquette,
and anything she really wants,
she manages to get….

For even at a tender age
she uses all her whiles,
and she can melt the hardest heart
with the sunshine of her smiles.

Brand New Little Daughter

by Linda Lee Elrod

She´s your brand new little daughter,
so enchanted, sweet and smart.
With a coo, she´ll have you smiling
With a laugh, she´ll own your heart.

It´s the time for hugs and kisses,
Reassurance when she cries.
It´s the time for making moments
Full of love and Lullabies.

For these golden days of childhood
come and go so very fast –
Hold her tight and love her dearly.
Make these precious moments last.

For Girls…

By Author unknown

Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people.
They are born with a little bit of angel shine about them,
and though it wears thin sometimes,
there is always enough left to lasso your heart –
even when they are sitting in the mud,
or crying temperamental tears,
or parading up the street in mother’s best clothes.

What Is A Girl

She’s a bundle of happiness wrapped up in pink,
Who’ll take over your heart just as quick as a wink.
She’s a lover of perfume, of satin and lace,
And it pleases her so, just to powder her face.
She’s an angel who’s learned when to turn on the tears…
For she’s blessed with a wisdom beyond her short years.
She’s an elf bubbling over with laughter and fun,
Who will “mother” most anything under the sun.
She’s the hope of tomorrow topped off with a curl…
A dreamer, a darling, all this is a girl.

GIRLS – RELIGIOUS

Why God Made Little Girls (1)

God made the world with its towering trees,
Majestic mountains and restless seas.
Then paused and said, “It needs one more thing;
Someone to laugh and dance and sing,
To walk in the woods and gather flowers,
To commune with nature in quiet hours.”
So God made little girls,
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls.
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles,
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
And when He completed the task He’d begun,
He was pleased and proud of the job He’d done.
For the world, when seen through a little girl’s eyes,
Greatly resembles Paradise.

Why God Made Baby Girls (2)

God created little girls to cuddle in your arms.
He made them warm and very soft with sweet and special charms….
They sometimes keep you at night but brighten every day.
With sunny smiles and laughing eyes that steal your heart away…

HANDS & FEET

A Baby’s Feet

by  Algernon Charles Swinburne

A baby’s feet, like sea shells pink,
Might tempt, should heaven see meet
An angel’s lips to kiss, we think,
A baby’s feet.

Like rose-hued sea flowers toward the heat
They stretch and spread and wink
Their ten soft buds that part and meet.

No flower bells that expand and shrink
Gleam half so heavenly sweet,
As shine on life’s untrodden brink
A baby’s feet.

Baby’s Feet

By author unknown

Someday I’ll jump through puddles,
Take a stroll or run a race.
Someday I’ll walk across the street
Or maybe walk in space.
Someday I’ll scale a mountain
Or I’ll join the ballet corps.
Someday I’ll walk a tightrope
Or explore the ocean floor.
Someday these feet will do some things
That only heaven knows
But for today they’re happy
Just to wiggle their toes!

Give us the spirit of the child

By Author Unknown

Give us the child who lives within – the child who trusts, the child who imagines, the child who sings, the child who receives without reservation, the child who gives without judgement.
Give us a child’s eyes, that we may receive the beauty and freshness of this day like a sunrise.
Give us a child’s ears, that we may hear the music of mythical times.
Give us a child’s heart, that we may be filled with wonder and delight.
Give us a child’s faith, that we may be cured of our cynicism.
Give us the spirit of the child, who is not afraid to need, who is not afraid to love.

HAPPINESS

I Want You To Be Happy

By Author Unknown

I want you to be happy.
I want you to fill your heart with feelings of wonder and to be full of courage and hope.
I want you to have the type of friendship that is a treasure – and the kind of love that is beautiful forever.
I wish you contentment: the sweet, quiet, inner kind that comes around and never goes away.
I want you to have hopes and have them all come true.
I want you to have a real understanding of how unique and rare you truly are.
I want to remind you that the sun may disappear for a while, but it never forgets to shine.
May the words you listen to say the things you need to hear.
And may a cheerful face lovingly look back at you when you happen to glance in your mirror.
I wish you the insight to see your inner and outer beauty.
I wish you sweet dreams.
I want you to have times when you feel like singing and dancing and laughing out loud.
I want you to be able to make your good times better and your hard times easier to handle.
I wish I could find a way to tell you – in untold ways – how important you are to me.
Of all the things I’ll be wishing for, wherever you are and whatever I may do,
there will never be a day in my life when I won’t be wishing for the best… for you.

Children Poems

wishes for a child poem

There is a wolf in me … fangs pointed for tearing gashes … a red tongue for raw meat … and the hot lapping of blood—I keep this wolf because the wilderness gave it to me and the wilderness will not let it go.

There is a fox in me … a silver-gray fox … I sniff and guess … I pick things out of the wind and air … I nose in the dark night and take sleepers and eat them and hide the feathers … I circle and loop and double-cross.

There is a hog in me … a snout and a belly … a machinery for eating and grunting … a machinery for sleeping satisfied in the sun—I got this too from the wilderness and the wilderness will not let it go.

There is a fish in me … I know I came from saltblue water-gates … I scurried with shoals of herring … I blew waterspouts with porpoises … before land was … before the water went down … before Noah … before the first chapter of Genesis.

There is a baboon in me … clambering-clawed … dog-faced … yawping a galoot’s hunger … hairy under the armpits … here are the hawk-eyed hankering men … here are the blond and blue-eyed women … here they hide curled asleep waiting … ready to snarl and kill … ready to sing and give milk … waiting—I keep the baboon because the wilderness says so.

There is an eagle in me and a mockingbird … and the eagle flies among the Rocky Mountains of my dreams and fights among the Sierra crags of what I want … and the mockingbird warbles in the early forenoon before the dew is gone, warbles in the underbrush of my Chattanoogas of hope, gushes over the blue Ozark foothills of my wishes—And I got the eagle and the mockingbird from the wilderness.

O, I got a zoo, I got a menagerie, inside my ribs, under my bony head, under my red-valve heart—and I got something else: it is a man-child heart, a woman-child heart: it is a father and mother and lover: it came from God-Knows-Where: it is going to God-Knows-Where—For I am the keeper of the zoo: I say yes and no: I sing and kill and work: I am a pal of the world: I came from the wilderness.

Writing a Birthday Poem

Make the poem extra special by writing one with your child in mind. For inspiration, think about that child's personality and the things he or she likes or might find amusing, then try writing a birthday verse or two.

  • Write an acrostic poem using the letters of the child's name to start each line.
  • Replace words like he, she, son, daughter, birthday boy, or birthday girl with the child's name or nickname.
  • Write a "100 Reasons to Celebrate Your Birth" poem where you list off 100 reasons you're excited to celebrate the child's birthday.
  • Turn a pun or kid's joke into a funny birthday poem by using it as an opening line then adding text that relates it to a birthday, gift, or party.
  • Make fun of common birthday practices like blowing out candles.
  • Compare the birthday to something kids find funny like a fart.
  • Talk about entering the "double digits" or tween years for kids ages 10 and older.
  • Describe a new experience common for that age such as heading to Kindergarten at age 5.
  • Use the child's age to write a list of great things about being that age. For example at age 8 your poem could be "8 Great Things About Turning 8."

Celebrate Another Year With Poetry

Enhance your child's birthday celebration with a poem just for him or her. Even if you don't write your own poem, you can easily customize a sample poem by inserting the child's name somewhere in a verse.

This activity encourages your child to listen for rhymes and use context clues to complete a poem. Encourage your child to read aloud (or repeat) the picture.
