1. Dr. Seuss Pregnancy Announcement
“What is this news?
Oh haven’t you heard?
A New Copeland’s coming
Around May 23rd!
So shout from the rooftops
For all that God’s done!
Jonathan and Ashley are blessed
With a daughter or son!”

2. I’m Pregnant!

“My tummy’s getting rounder,
My clothes are starting to fit tighter,
I can’t keep anything down,
I’m tired all the time.
Yep, there’s no doubt about it,
I’m pregnant, I’m knocked up,
I’m going to have a baby!”

3. Untitled
“We prayed for you,
With all our faith,
Then kept you a secret,
Until you were safe.
At twelve weeks,
I’m now ready to say,
We’re expecting a baby,
Six months away.”

4. Baby Reveal Poem
“What has ten fingers
And ten little toes,
Two sleepy eyes
And a cute button nose?
What has two feet,
And a belly to tickle,
And can cause a craving
For ice cream and pickles?
With just one more hint,
I’m sure you will see,
The answer to this riddle,
Begins with a B.”

5. When Two Became Three
“There was once a girl
And that girl met a boy
They found living as two
Was a life full of joy
These two happy lovebirds
This couple, this pair
Were snug in their nest
But they thought it quite bare
So they cuddled up closer
Made room in their tree
And their joy overflowed
When two became three.”

6. Ultrasound
“Novel unbegun,

half-loaf rising,

lighthouse northward

and anchor south.

 

Lemon to grapefruit,

you sleep-step sidewise,

turnover, pop-up,

tongue in the mouth.”

—Rachel Richardson

 

7. Song for Baby-O, Unborn
“Sweetheart

when you break thru

you’ll find

a poet here

not quite what one would choose.

 

I won’t promise

you’ll never go hungry

or that you won’t be sad

on this gutted

breaking

globe

 

but I can show you

baby

enough to love

to break your heart

forever.”

—Diane Di Prima

 

8. Honey
“I dream I am guided

by an elderly couple in a dim farmhouse

to their morning radio and blackberry tea

and then given the combs which I snap

into my dry mouth where they fill and fill.

Never, upon awaking, have I been so empty

and wanted more a cracker.  Never so

suffused with the weekly, with time

as another god passing through the many perfect

crypts and ambers I house beneath my skin.”

—Arielle Greenberg

 

9. Metaphors
“I’m a riddle in nine syllables,

An elephant, a ponderous house,

A melon strolling on two tendrils.

O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!

This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.

Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.

I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.

I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,

Boarded the train there’s no getting off.”

—Sylvia Plath

We hope that you are too!”
