"A Baby's Smile Is Sweet To See"

A baby's smile is sweet to see
Baby's smile is never evil
Baby kicks like a flower on the sea
She knows not the world's danger or misery

Her touch to you is soft and dear
Her grip as if to a cup so full
Your baby's smile is sweet to see
It throws a glow to your belly

Because she's pure--
Because she's yours--
Because helpless--
Because she stares at you as a focus of trust--
And has also the smile of a witty walrus
You must love this baby tenderly.

A baby's smile is sweet to see
It is the quickest innocence.
