We have recently had a new addition to our family. So in honour of our newest granddaughter I would like to share a poem from Carol Lyn Pearson. I have always like this poem and it was only recently that I learned that it had been written by Carol Lyn Pearson.
It is called ‘Day Old Child’ and as you can understand from the title it deals with the birth of children and our reactions to the new individual that has been added to our families
Day Old Child
My day old child lay in my arms
With my lips against his ear
I whispered strongly, how I wish. . . . .
I wish that you could hear.
I’ve a hundred wonderful things to say
(a tiny cough and a nod)
Hurry, hurry, hurry and grow
So I can tell you about God
My day old baby’s mouth was still
And my words tinkled his ear,
But a kind of light passed through his eyes
And I saw this thought appear.
How I wish I had a voice and words;
I’ve a hundred things to say
Before I forget, I’d tell of God. . . .
I left him yesterday.
Carol Lynn Pearson
So n this note I will leave you for now and i hope you enjoy this poem just as much as I do.
