Poems Celebrating the Miracle of New Life

Poetry about babies are some of the most popular poems that are written. There is something about interacting with a baby that ignites something magical in all of us. They stare at us with inquisitive eyes curious about everything that is happening in their world. We look into their eyes and we remember a time before we were sure we had seen everything meaningful in life. They are us in miniature. We look at their tiny features and their chubby little bodies and we can't help but smile. Interacting with a baby can be truly miraculous.
