Our Wishes for a Child poem is a unique gift from a godparent - ideal for births, christenings, naming ceremonies, first birthdays etc. A lovely gift from grandparents, aunts, uncles too!
Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet and mum of three Joanna Miller, this poem began life as a gift for a godchild.
This godparent gift comes unframed but we would be happy to frame it for you (see drop down menu). For an extra fee you are welcome to add a personalised message below the christening poem.
Wishes for a Child
May you know the gift of friendship
Feel the sun upon your face
May you win displaying dignity
And accept defeat with grace
May you marvel at the wonders
Of nature and the earth
May you value education
And know your own true worth
May you live and love with honesty
And do the thing that’s right
May you stand up for the helpless
And sleep in peace at night
May you thrive upon a challenge
And sing and dance and laugh
May you know the joy of parenthood
And follow your own path.

The christening poem is printed onto the highest quality white A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print.
Each christening poem is lovingly produced to order. Unframed christening prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope.
For an extra fee we can frame the christening print for you. The lightweight wooden frames are either stepped white with a slightly grained effect or smooth white. Both have a hook for wall hanging. The front is Perspex.
Each frame is hand finished in the UK. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made cardboard wrap.
This new baby print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H34.5 x W25.7 x D2cm.
