John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7305
AUTHOR:James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
QUOTATION:This child is not mine as the first was;
  I can not sing it to rest;
I can not lift it up fatherly,
  And bless it upon my breast.


Yet it lies in my little one’s cradle,
  And sits in my little one’s chair,
And the light of the heaven she’s gone to
  Transfigures its golden hair.
ATTRIBUTION:The Changeling.
