The union blessed, the marriage consummated.
At the dawn of wedlock, came conception as expected
Up above, in His wisdom and good pleasure
Came forth this child of exceeding great measure.
At his christening, all did rejoice and hailed thus;
Herald the great tidings of a new born into the world.
But only He above who sees and discerns even the deepest thoughts
Could foresee and fathom the peculiarity of this child.
In all worldly wisdom dissenting,
His features not consenting.
This child is thus described;
Whoever saw or imagined a child,
Not sought but bought
Not given but he shared
Not sung but in all ears he rang
Not fattened but he increased
Not excited but he cheered
Not taught but he learned
Malnourished but he bred
Uninvited but he chaired
Unfed but he fared well
Unemployed but he earned
Uncrowned but he graced
Unelated but he humiliated
Uncomely but was daunting
Tho unprepared but he dared
Wasn’t assessed but he excelled
Not tried but he thrived
Not forewarned but he feared
Not deemed intelligent but he integrated intellects
Tho ungifted but he gave place to the lifted
Wasn’t intrinsic but on his instincts everyone doth insist.
Once again, from whose records hath this child sprung?
Or at whose beckon hath he come?
From which soil did he sprout?
Or at whose command was he brought forth?
He is not indebted to the inventors of this world
But still he emerges in every heart as “THE PECULIAR CHILD”
