Hello Fellow Chimps! For today’s extra post, I am going to share with you the poem that I read to everyone yesterday at my Cousin Lily’s Christening Lunch. The christening was beautiful, and Lily was full of smiles! Now – no more chit-chat, this is the poem I wrote for Lily:
From graceful lilies pure and white,
God fashioned beautiful skin,
Forget-me-nots he chose for eyes;
Then formed your baby chin.
He took a tulip bright and red,
It was one that could not fade;
And created a sweet little mouth,
That before was never made.
Another flower next was used,
A rosebud, pink and fair;
He touched it to your dimpled cheeks,
And made it blossom there.
And then with magic fingers he picked;
two morning glories – white,
He curled and shaped your little ears,
Soon they were fastened tight.
That crowning bit of golden down
Will soon become your hair;
He gathered pollen from the flowers,
And sprinkled it with care.
For dainty little fingers
And precious, tiny toes,
He used slender daisy frills;
And a snowdrop for your nose.
This world and everything in it,
It was created here for man;
But Lily was “God’s Little Artwork”
Since time and life began.
I hope you enjoyed her poem, she’s a very sweet baby and this poem really resembles her.
Until Next Time,
Be Free, Be Chimps!
