HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
ESDRAS ben LUBIN hereby announces
He weighs seven pounds plus three and a half ounces;
His birthday is under the sign of Aquarious
On the 20th day of the month of Februarious,
His color is good, his eyes indeterminate,
And his mouth still looks as if he had a big worm in it;
But he's chockful of formula, talents and bubbles,
A flotsam of hope and an ocean of troubles;
He was launched by the Lubins with some trepidations
And the usual happy and painful sensations,
And all that he asks is your humor and grace
While he learns to
be part of the great human race!
