Elijah Immanuel Kerby

The luckiest patriarch alive
Is Miles, whose tribe has grown to five!
As Tim and Sheena blessed with love
Have a precious bundle from above.

Our Kerby clan now grows apace;
Over Internet the brand new face
Of Elijah wrapped in swaddling clothes
Mass of dark hair, cheeky nose,

Peeps out for all of us to see
A new star on the Christmas tree!
Fast asleep - content and warm
A perfect son, November born.

Immanuel is his second name
It means “God with us”, that is plain
No one could have a better start
He’s left his footprints in our heart!
