For a special baby

For a special baby
Loving thoughts and nimble hands
Created this little bonnet
Of fine lace and ribbon bands.
At first it was a handkerchief
But with some stitches small,
A bonnet was made for downy head
To be admired by all.
Mother will carefully store it,
And gently pack it away
Years later, she’ll take it out
Before her daughter’s wedding day.
She’ll snip the tiny stitches
Place it in her daughter’s hand
To carry, as a hanky, down the aisle
And receive her wedding band.
Mother’s son will find good use
For the square, when he’s a young man
He’ll give it to his sweetheart
When he asks her for her hand.
