Wishing well poems serve a specific purpose. They politely inform guests a mother-to-be is open to receiving gifts, and the poem includes a short list of preferred items.
The Wishing Well Poem
Diapers, bottles, clothes galore,
we have some but still need more.
If you could pitch-in to help with these,
The parents-to-be would sure be pleased.
With your donation, your name please don't tell,
it's just a little contribution to our wishing well.
