Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
236. Maternity
 
By Alice Meynell
 
 
ONE wept whose only child was dead
  New-born, ten years ago.
“Weep not; he is in bliss,” they said.
  She answered, “Even so.
 
“Ten years ago was born in pain        5
  A child not now forlorn.
But oh, ten years ago, in vain
  A mother, a mother was born.”
