Irish Baby Blessing

baby shower poems

May all the blessings of our Lord touch your life today.
May He send His little angels to protect you on your way.
Such a miraculous gift, sent from above.
Someone so precious to cherish and love.
May sunshine and moonbeams dance over your head.
As you quietly slumber in your bed.
May good luck be with you wherever you go.
And your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.



Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel I knew it from the start
the first time my angel smiled at me I gave away my heart
today I kissed an angel this angel child of mine
though not of my creation my child by God's design
today I kissed an angel my heart is dancing wild,
a family by a miracle blessed by this angel child.

Infant Joy

"I have no name;
I am but two days old."
What shall I call thee?
"I happy am,
Joy is my name."
Sweet joy befall thee!
Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while;
Sweet joy befall thee!

~ William Blake

Poems for Baby

Angels At The Foot

Angels at the foot,
And Angels at the head,
And like a curly little lamb
My pretty babe in bed.

or another poem for babies by Christina Rossetti:-

Love Me - I Love You

Love me - I love you,
Love me, my baby;
Sing it high, sing it low,
Sing it as may be.

Mother's arms under you,
Her eyes above you;
Sing it high, sing it low,
Love me - I love you.

~ from Sing-Song, A Nursery Rhyme Book by Christina Rossetti

Taking Care of Baby

Little, helpless baby dear,
While within your cot you lie,
Sister May is sitting near--
She will sing your lullaby.

When at last you fall asleep,
Not the slightest noise she'll make;
Quiet as a mouse she'll keep,
Lest she should her darling wake.

May will watch you well, for though
She can play and prattle too,
'Tis not very long ago
Since she was a babe like you.

Then mam-ma o'er little May
Day and night her watch would keep;
May her care can now repay,
Watching baby whilst asleep.

If A Child

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 guilty.
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 praise,
he learns to appreciate.
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.
