    How you looked!
    out of small eyes still
    focused on eternity.
    How you groped
    mouth hands mind
    open and shut
    not worried, seeking -
    sure to find.
    You were so new!
    even your skin was new
    your hair brand-new
    your voice - never heard before
    making a tiny piteous roar.
    Hello Little Stranger!
    Welcome to the planet
    This is Earth; and this bright
    bold business newly done
    was your birth.
