Do you have a pattern for the poem "I'm rocking my baby"?
Katie from Saffell, AR
I hope my children look back on today,
And see a Mother who had time to play!
Children grow up while you're not looking,
There'll be years ahead for cleaning and cooking,
So quiet now, cobwebs; dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.
I also found this:
...The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
for children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
from "Song for a Fifth Child" by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton
Leisure Arts put out a leaflet with a cross stitch sampler with this poem on it. It has mother in a rocking chair rocking a baby in the lower left corner. Check their website or email me, I will try and dig it up from my stash for u.
