NUMBER:5311
AUTHOR:Robert Southey (1774–1843)
QUOTATION:Oh, when a mother meets on high
  The babe she lost in infancy,
Hath she not then for pains and fears,
  The day of woe, the watchful night,
  For all her sorrow, all her tears,
  An over-payment of delight?
ATTRIBUTION:The Curse of Kehama. Canto x. Stanza 11.
