William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Georgian Verse.  1909.
 
On Parent Knees, a Naked New-born Child
By Sir William Jones (1746–1794)
 
ON parent knees, a naked new-born child,
Weeping thou sat’st while all around thee smiled:
So live, that sinking to thy life’s last sleep,
Calm thou may’st smile, whilst all around thee weep.
