Child/Christening Poem Print

A beautifully written poem about all we might wish for a child to experience in life. A unique and personal Christening present.

Our heartfelt 'Wishes for a Child' poem is the perfect godparent gift - ideal for births, Christenings, naming ceremonies, first birthdays etc. A lovely gift from for grandparents, aunts, uncles too!

Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet and mum of three Joanna Miller, this poem began life as a gift for her new goddaughter.

It describes all the blessings we might wish for children to know, from the joy of the sun upon their face, to the value of friendship and education.

The print comes unframed.

The wording reads:

Wishes for a Child

May you know the gift of friendship

Feel the sun upon your face

May you win displaying dignity

And accept defeat with grace

May you marvel at the wonders

Of nature and the earth

May you value education

And know your own true worth

May you live and love with honesty

And do the thing that’s right

May you stand up for the helpless

And sleep in peace at night

May you thrive upon a challenge

And sing and dance and laugh

May you know the joy of parenthood

And follow your own path.
