How sweet is baby in my arms?
Sweeter than cowslips in the field.
How sweet is baby on my lap?
Sweeter than wild suckle on my lips
How sweet is baby in our home?
As sweet as honey from the comb.
-Mrs. Karl T Cooper Jr.

I just finished reading Sing-Song to my girls. It’s a wonderful book of poetry by Christina Rossetti. We have the Dover edition which really is quite nice. However, I was surprised to see such a high price on amazon and began looking for other editions. Here are a few more I found :
