A Great Day to Be Born!

in the early
morning hours
a Boy
slipped into
this world
so early
that
 he barely
missed
any part
of the day.
It was a great day to be born!

Chocolate cows quietly grazed on
Morning dewed fragrant green fields, and
Steaming fog lifted from night cooled meadows and ponds,
While the sun glistened on feathery tassels of golden corn
And giant puffy white whipped cream clouds floated in
A blueberry sky.
It was a beautiful day to be born!

but in the room 
Little Eyes
only 
saw
shadowy
figures,
eyes
and 
smiles
and 
heard 
soft voices
and felt
caressing
hands
softly
stroking
his oh, so,
soft face.

 It was a lovely day to be born!

Outside, the wide world was beckoning
‘Please, come out and play!
There is a world of wonder awaiting you.'
It was a wonderful day to be born!

but the
world of wonder
will still 
be there
tomorrow.
right now
he is
OUR
World of Wonder!
It was a glorious day to be born!
