I was looking for a little something to add to a baby shower gift for a good friend when an email came in about this book.
Poignant, inspiring, and full of wisdom, Morning Song celebrates the joy a new child brings to the life of parents and family. With sources ranging from the Bible, Sappho, and traditional songs to Dickinson, Yeats, Frost, and our outstanding contemporary poets, this beautiful collection summons the cosmic and the comic, the spiritual and the pragmatic, the whimsical and the divine. Sections such as “Conception and Grace,” “Waiting,” “Sleep and Song,” and “Green and Carefree” evoke the breadth of the parenting experience and capture the emotional intensity of this magical time.
It looks like a perfect first mother’s day gift.
Have a beautiful weekend and Mother’s Day Mamas! May you have a long deep sleep followed by breakfast in bed!
