Baby Shower Poems

Have you and your new baby been showered with beautiful baby gifts and want to say thank you personally? Were you touched by the thought that your family and friends put into their gifts? The birth of a baby and the beginning of a new life is a perfect occasion for creating baby shower poems to use before your baby arrives.

Your baby may not even be born yet, but you can make your thank you notes just as thoughtful and personal by writing a card with a poem from your unborn baby in it.

You may need to spend a little extra time sitting down with your feet up right now, so why not grab a pencil and start on a thank you poem of your own?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

"What colour will my eyes be?
What about my hair -
Chestnut, like my mother's
Or like my father's, fair?

Will I be an athlete,
A writer, movie star?
Maybe I'm to travel
To countries near and far.

Of one thing I am certain,
Even now I know it's true.
I'm greatly loved and wanted
By folks as dear as you."

If you wanted, it would be easy to change your poem slightly and address it to your baby:

"What colour will your eyes be?
What about your hair -
Chestnut, like your mother's
Or like your father's, fair?

Will you be an athlete,
A writer, movie star?
Maybe you're to travel
To countries near and far.

Of one thing I am certain,
Even now I know it's true.
You're dearly loved and wanted
By your family waiting for you."

And don't think it has to be hard if you're having twins, or triplets, or more. (The poem writing isn't hard, at least.) How about this one:

"Thank you for your presents
You're really very kind
We couldn't be with you today
We know that you won't mind
We'll soon be here to see you
And make a bit of noise
And that's when you will find out
If we are girls or boys."

So go on, thank your family and friends for their lovely baby gifts with your own personal thank you poem.
