Free baby shower poems include "Time Well Spent" by Joanna Fuchs and "With Ten Tiny Fingers" by Jennifer Williamson. Huggies.com also offers free baby shower poems. General poems about babies are also appropriate, such as Alfred Lord Tennyson's "Cradle Song" and Carl Sandburg's "Baby Toes."
Fuchs' poem addresses parenthood and life changes following the birth of an infant, while Williamson's describes the features of a new baby and how he or she creates "a home full of love." Tennyson's "Cradle Song" depicts the bittersweet nature of raising a baby only to have the child grow up and become an adult on his or her own. Sandburg's poem illustrates the possibility of parenthood versus growing old without children.
