Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. This week’s theme is pregnancy and childbirth.
Today’s poem thanks friends for gifts on the birth of a child.
I welcome comments on my poems at http://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
A child is the greatest gift
That our lives can bestow.
It brings the most exquisite joy
That we will ever know.
Some days deliver happiness,
Far more than we can touch.
We need the help of all our friends
To comprehend how much.
And so we thank you for the gifts,
Both those you brought and are,
That celebrate this rich, full life
And its rising star!
