Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
The Babe
By Sir William Jones (1746–1794)
 
Translated from Calidasa

NAKED on parents’ knees, a newborn child,
Weeping thou sat’st when all around thee smiled:
So live, that, sinking to thy last long sleep,
Thou then mayst smile while all around thee weep.
