God's Masterpiece

From graceful lilies pure and white,
God fashioned lovely skin, 
Forgetmenots he chose for eyes, 
Then formed your baby chin. 

He took a tulip bright and red -- 
Twas one that did not fade; 
A softer, sweeter little mouth 
Before was never made. 

Another flower next He used -- 
A rosebud, pink and fair; 
Touched it to your dimpled cheeks 
And bade it blossom there.

Then with His magic fingers picked 
Two morning glories white; 
Curled and shaped your little ears, 
Soon they were fastened tight.

That crowning bit of golden down 
Will soon become your hair; 
He gathered pollen from the flowers, 
And sprinkled it with care.

For dainty little fingers dear 
And precious, tiny toes, 
He used slender daisy frills; 
A snowdrop made your nose.

This world and all within it 
He created here for man; 
But Baby was "God's Masterpiece" 
Since time and life began!
