In the amniotic ocean
Little foetus floats on by,
Unaware of parents watching
Through the scanners magic eye.

Up on screen it dances for them –
Mother feels the butterflies,
Father gasps in utter wonder
As their prodigy swims by.

Miracle of modern science
Shows to them their child of love,
Perfect angel right before them –
Gift of God from high above.
