Rippled excitement in the air
Anticipation – it's all there
A new babe human warmth imparts
And brings a glow to all our hearts.
So fragile, delicate and cute
Sweet marvel in a birthday suit
The culmination of all joys
A tiny soul emitting noise!
At one-day-old brought safely home
The first page of a lifelong tome
Dark-haired, a contrast to big bro
Who kisses her and wants to know
When she'll be old enough to play
As they live in tandem from today!
Isabella with her eyes closed tight
Will keep her secrets for tonight.
While Granny takes good care of him
Thomas stares and takes it in
Hark! The Herald Angels sing!
This Christmas has a special ring ...
