Child of a Day
 
Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
 
CHILD of a day, thou knowest not
  The tears that overflow thine urn,
The gushing eyes that read thy lot,
  Nor, if thou knewest, couldst return.
And why the wish! the pure and blest        5
  Watch like thy mother o’er thy sleep.
O peaceful night! O envied rest!
  Thou wilt not ever see her weep.
