Baby Steps

Arms outstretched; fists white-knuck-ling.

Small feet are stum-bling.

She wants to take steps today.


Hair disheveled; voice mum-bling.

Girl starts a’ tum-bling.

Falling down won’t ruin her day.


Getting up; she’s still stru-ggling,

Short legs are fum-bling.

Fixed to take first steps today.


Crackers out; tummy’s grum-bling.

Wood floor starts rum-bling.

Steps are coming straight this way.


She’s close; crackers crum-bling.

And Mom starts bum-bling.

Baby took first steps today!

  5. I think the uneven syllables of this form really lend themselves well to the gait of a child learning to walk.

  6. You’ve captured a sweet moment. I’m impressed that the baby is walking for the first time and attempting to eat. That’s a go-getter!
