Mummy, what’s a babyfish?

text: Arianna Sangiovanni

Well, baby fish are tiny souls,
born deep beneath the seas.
They’re strange and shy and can’t be tamed -
they do just what they please. 
 They love the rhythm of the waves,
and gentle music too -
they like to dance and flutter in
the silence of the blue.     
But then, one day, your baby fish
will look at you and smile,
a smile that makes you glow all warm
 and fuzzy for a while.
 This sound will make your heart lie still.
You’ll know at once it’s true
that deep in every one of us,
a baby dreams the blue.
