Just Born
Author: Newage Caveman


Gleaming eyes that twinkle
Cheeks that shine and winkle
Huddling in its cradle
Lies the little poodle

White as a dove
Fresh from its cove
Wails the little infant
Beside motherís love

Smells like a flower
Smiles like a saint
The real peace makers
are these little ones without a taint

Buds that blossom into gardens
As the baby snugís in its hive
Mushroomed by its aura
Lies an unfathomed smile

Itís sad that we were all once infants
Only to be besieged by the time of life
The age that was lost in innocence
An eon when bliss was rife

Worry will never torment us
If we learn to smile like these little creatures
God shall rain tears of love
When lifeís lessons are learnt from the toddlers

------- Author's Notes -------

A baby is a symbol of innocence and warmth. Though we have lost our innocence as adults, we can still continue to be warm, loving and caring by radiating joy like the little ones!

Made me get nostalgic about innocence. Awesome poetry as always!

Wonderful......the selfless unconditional love that an infant showers on everyone inspires this love and trust ........maybe therein lies the less demanding and learn to love others for what they are and not what they can give....
