Baby Daze is a poetry collection of humorous and sentimental views of early motherhood. The poems cover a range of topics and feelings that parents of all ages would relate to. The poems are short, accessible and easy to read – even for sleep deprived new mums!
The scan and seeing the beating of your tiny little heart,
Knowing that it’s really only just the very start.
Growing ever bigger as you struggle to find room,
Feeling kicks and hiccups as you move inside the womb.
Hearing your first cries just as you come into the world,
Beginning your life’s journey – soon to be unfurled.
The gripping of my finger with your tiny little hand,
The feeling and emotions only parents understand.
Author Sarah Davis grew up in Gloucester but now lives in Armley, Leeds where she works part-time as a teacher.
