Subject(s): Children; Mothers; Childhood

ALL Heaven in my arm,
The child for a charm
'Gainst fear and 'gainst sorrow,
To-day and to-morrow.
The child for a charm
Betwixt me and harm.

O mouth, full of kisses!
Small body of blisses!
Your hand on my neck
And your cheek to my cheek.
What shall hurt me or harm
With all Heaven in my arm?
