by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

I know a baby, such a baby
Language: English 
I know a baby, such a baby, --
  Round blue eyes and cheeks of pink,
Such an elbow furrowed with dimples,
  Such a wrist where creases sink.

"Cuddle and love me, cuddle and love me,"
  Crows the mouth of coral pink:
Oh, the bald head, and, oh, the sweet lips,
  And, oh, the sleepy eyes that wink!
