913. A Child
 
By Richard Watson Gilder
 
 
HER voice was like the song of birds;
    Her eyes were like the stars;
Her little waving hands were like
    Birds’ wings that beat the bars.
 
And when those waving hands were still,—        5
    Her soul had fled away,—
The music faded from the air,
    The color from the day.
