The Baby's Coming!

Thursday, July 28, 2011


      Our third grandchild will be arriving soon.  I couldn't help but write about it.

The Baby’s Coming!

It almost is the day that
the baby’s coming!
I need to change the appointment,
because the baby’s coming!
I haven’t done the laundry either;
the baby’s coming!
Forget the dusting and the scrubbing;
the baby’s coming!
I’ll have to cook that chicken, but
the baby’s coming!
Maybe I’ll get up early to exercise;
did I tell you the baby’s coming?
I’d like to sit and rest to get ready for
the baby’s coming!
I want to tell my daughter that I’m thrilled
her baby’s coming!
And give my son-in-law a hug;
his baby’s coming.
We’ll play with older sister because
the baby’s coming!
It’s just the most wonderful thing that
the baby’s coming!
I’ll tell you more about it after I see
this baby coming!

  2. I like how you changed from 'the' to 'her' and 'his', and the quick tempo of it, to clearly convey the excitement...so that's the critique...now for the little "yippee!" from me....quiet like...I don't want to scare the baby into delaying! So excited for you! Me next!!!

  4. I love your poem's rhythm :). It's alive! It makes me think of Katie Wood Ray's connection between sentence structure and meaning.

    I'm so excited for you that the baby is coming!!!
