Precious and delicate
Newly born
Sensate and aware
Language still
A distant prayer
Who are you there?

You need shelter
An understanding host
A kindness that
Is blind to all
That’s alien
In your sweet form
And how you’re born

Is just a cloak
A disguise that hides
Essential similarity
Beneath this skin
A living thing
Like us to see

Precious and delicate
Every breath you draw
Is a miracle
Upon these shores
So far from home
A creature new
Too new for this
Cruel world to see
