That Smell - Senryu

by Tony Whitaker

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

-C. Herbert Woolston

Rock-a-bye baby

To inhale that special smell

-Newborn's silken crown


Author's Note: Nothing like it! Dedicated to Paige Skeen and her new grandson.

I can relate Tony, and "silken crown" is just beautiful....the purity, the hair of angels. This is wonderful. Thanks.
