1196. Whenever a Little Child Is Born
 
By Agnes Carter Mason
 
 
WHENEVER a little child is born,
All night a soft wind rocks the corn;
One more buttercup wakes to the morn,
    Somewhere, somewhere.
 
One more rosebud shy will unfold,        5
One more grass-blade push through the mold,
One more bird-song the air will hold,
    Somewhere, somewhere.
