Someone Ate The Baby
Someone ate the baby it's rather sad to say
Someone ate the baby so she won't be out to play
We'll never hear her whiney cry or have to feel if she is dry
We'll never hear her asking why why why someone ate the baby

The Sleeping Child
My baby slept-how calm his rest,
As o'er his handsome face a smile
Like that of angel flitted, while
He lay so still upon my breast!

The maple strews the embers of its leaves
O'er the laggard swallows nestled 'neath the eaves;
And the moody cricket falters in his cry--Baby-bye!--

The morning that my baby came
They found a baby swallow dead,
And saw a something, hard to name,
Flit moth-like over baby's bed.

Baby's First Journey
Lightly they hold him and lightly they sway him-
Soft as a pillow are somebody's arms.
Down he goes slowly, ever so lowly
Over the rim of the cradle they lay him-

Baby Vamps
Baby vamps, is it harder work than it used to be?
Are the new soda parlors worse than the old time saloons?
Baby vamps, do you have jobs in the day time or is this all you do? do you come out only at night?
In the winter at the skating rinks, in the summer at the roller coaster parks,

Night's finger on the lip of life
Bids whist the tongue, so prattle-rife,
Of busy Baby Charley.

Might tempt, should heaven see meet
An angel's lips to kiss, we think,
A baby's feet.

I've got a couple more years on you, baby...that's all.

It's only that I've spent more time with my back to the wall.

Something for friends to come in just to see;

Whence yet no leaf expands,
Ope if you touch, though close upcurled,
A baby's hands.
