God's Masterpiece

 


From graceful lilies pure and white,
God fashioned lovely skin,
Forgetmenots he chose for eyes,
Then formed your baby chin.


He took a tulip bright and red --
Twas one that did not fade;
A softer, sweeter little mouth
Before was never made.



Another flower next He used --
A rosebud, pink and fair;
Touched it to your dimpled cheeks
And bade it blossom there.


Then with His magic fingers picked
Two morning glories white;
Curled and shaped your little ears,
Soon they were fastened tight.



That crowning bit of golden down
Will soon become your hair;
He gathered pollen from the flowers,
And sprinkled it with care.


For dainty little fingers dear
And precious, tiny toes,
He used slender daisy frills;
A snowdrop made your nose.



This world and all within it
He created here for man;
But Baby was "God's Masterpiece"
Since time and life began!
