LIKE A SICK CHILD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Like a sick child that knoweth not
Last Line: Could come from any other.
Subject(s): Mothers


LIKE a sick child that knoweth not
His mother while she blesses,
And droppeth on his burning brow
The coolness of her kisses;
And turns his fevered eyes around--
"My mother, where's my mother?"
As if such tender words and looks
Could come from any other.
