scanned from greeting cards kept in a scrapbook made in 1948.
Some of the verses were taken from the same cards.~
A baby's ways so sweet;
A baby's love is something
That makes two lives complete.~
They may look cross when you start to cry.
But just a "coo" a smile that lingers --
And they'll be wound around your fingers.~
God's love has brought you, Baby Dear!
You will find joy and tender care
Guiding your footsteps everywhere;
You will find pathways glad and bright,
Leading through years of true delight!
Such is the fate life holds for you
If day by day, this wish comes true~
Something to laugh at the whole day through,
Something to look at with pride and with glee,
Something for friends to come in just to see;
Something you can't sum up all the wonderful things
Of joy and delight which a new baby brings.~
To make a happy home complete
A baby's smile and winning ways
To add real joy to passing days.~
