Baby Shower Poems

During the baby shower, you treat the mum-to-be with games and gifts. Maybe there could be small speeches given full of sage advice for the new mum.

You could also make the guest of honor feel special by reciting poems.

A great touch if everyone at the party loves literature and writing. The poetry could be written on a card, used as a decoration during the shower, or made more memorable by being turned into a gift.

Teensy-weensy toothless smiles,
This baby will be so divine.
Teensy-weensy hands and feet,
Will be God’s blissful treat. – Anonymous

2.

Tiny hands, little toes
Heavenly bliss is bestowed
Gentle smiles and tender cries
Surely soon brightens up our skies.
Placid eyes, feeble feet
An angel amiably sleeps
Small fingers, pointy nose
A tiny gift God has endowed!
That tiny baby we hold so dear
Will soon bring us joys in all the years
This tiny gift that makes us grin
Is a miracle sent from heaven!
Come join us to celebrate the arrival of our little munchkin! – Anonymous

We can’t wait to meet you
So we’re gathered here today,
To shower you with presents
That you’re going to need someday.
Until the day that you arrive
And we all get to see you,
We’ll give your mom the support she needs
And eagerly wait to greet you. – By Kelly Roper

4.

A bundle in pink,
A bundle in blue,
A bundle of love,
Is coming to you.
Treat it with kindness,
Treat it with care,
Always be gentle,
And the great love you two will share. – Anonymous

The gift of life is understood and known when you are a child,
But the gift of living is understood better when you have a child.
That is why we are sending you an invite,
Please come and enjoy the baby shower of our beautiful child. – Anonymous

What a treasure trove you brought,
With kind words and warm thoughts.
For a day full of joys and laughter,
Bubbling up to the rafter.
The fun we had,
The food we shared,
Makes us confident for baby’s future,
With such friends to look after her.
Thank you for the memory,
And your pure generosity. – Anonymous

7.

Pink, blue, yellow
The excitement too real
The day has finally come
The timing is here
Boy, girl
Whatever the case
There isn’t a moment wasted
Till we get to see this beautiful baby’s face
Let’s celebrate in happiness
Together at last
Forever and always
With cheers and laughs – Anonymous

Ten fingers and ten toes that’s all we know,

A baby is on the way is all we can say,

We welcome you to this special occasion

As we celebrate this baby shower

As we anticipate the arrival of our bundle of joy.” – Anonymous

With babies come toys
and a whole world of joys
and all kinds of fun things to do…
With babies come laughter
and love ever after…
With babies, sweet dreams all come true – Anonymous

Pregnancy blues and labor pains,
Boy or Girl, we just don’t know
Sleepless nights of a baby crying,
Some want diapers and others prefer napkins
On the day of the baby shower
Bring those toys and maybe some flower.
Then we feast on cakes while we play games.” – Anonymous

A baby is sunshine,
Moonbeams and more. 
Brightening your world,
As never before. – Anonymous

The pitter-patter of little feet,
Our baby girl will have the sweetest smile.
Her giggles will bring joy deep inside,
Her tiny hands and tiny feet,
We are eagerly waiting to meet.
This bundle of joy now rests quietly,
What a precious treasure rests placidly,
Our baby girl will be so cute and small,
Will grow so lovely for sure.
This baby we amiably adore,
Felicity is sweetly out poured,
This baby that will have a physique so mild,
Will bring us tons of delight. – Anonymous

Soon you will be a mother
You have so much to give
Your baby will arrive
A new life you will live
It’s time to put your feet up
The birth is getting near
We are all here to help you
Happy baby shower my dear – Anonymous

14,

An exciting time of expectation
Making plans and preparation
Swelling tummy pride to match
Waiting for your chick to hatch
Pamper yourself rest up well
What’s to come who can tell
A life of love and caring for
Your little angel to adore – Anonymous

Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You
A person’s a person,no matter how small.
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way. 
If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere. 
And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple. – Dr. Seuss

16.

I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. 
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins,
and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins. – Shel Silverstein

17.

We can’t wait to meet you
So we’re gathered here today
To shower you with presents
That you’re going to need someday.
Until the day that you arrive,
And we all get to see you,
We’ll give your mom the support she needs
And eagerly wait to greet you. – Anonymous

Dear Mr. Stork,
There are a few things I’d like to say,
About that little baby
You’ll be delivering any day.
Please Mr. Stork,
If it’s a little boy,
Make sure he has his daddy’s smile
That shines with so much joy.
If it’s a little girl make sure
She has her mommy’s eyes,
That never fail to see the wonder
In each morning’s new sunrise.
And please Mr. Stork,
Try hard not to delay.
This baby’s parents can hardly wait,
So hurry on your way. – Kelly Roper

19.

You are unborn,
But it doesn’t matter,
For you are still my baby.
In my womb,
You shall remain,
Until it is your time.
Today we gather,
From far and near,
To celebrate your life to come.
We are so happy,
And we want you to know,
We love you dearly. – Anonymous

Congratulations, mom to be
You will be an absolutely wonderful one
Without a doubt, that is easy to see.
Considering all of your
Caring and nurturing ways
Your baby will be beyond blessed
For all the rest of their days.

Now you have a handful of poems to add more inspiration to the baby shower. If you love writing, you can always try your hand at penning your own poem.

Allow your creative juices to flow.

As the host, you could place the poems into a hat or bowl and have people randomly draw one out. Then it’s time to read out the poetry and bless the new mama.

Have fun!
