DEATH OF BABIES
[ Also see Babies Birth Death Death of Children ]

When the baby died,
  On every side
    Rose strangers' voices, hard and harsh and loud.
      The baby was not wrapped in any shroud.
        The mother made no sound. Her head was bowed
          That men's eyes might not see
            Her misery.
      - Helen Hunt (Helen Hunt Jackson)

Those who have lost an infant are never, as it were, without an infant child. Their other children grow up to manhood and womanhood, and suffer all the changes of mortality; but this one alone is rendered an immortal child; for death has arrested it with his kindly harshness, and blessed it into an eternal image of youth and innocence.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

When the baby died we said,
  With a sudden secret dread;
    "Death be merciful and pass;
      Leave the other!"--but alas!
        While we watched he waited there,
          One foot on the golden stair
            One hand beckoning at the gate,
              Till the home was desolate.
      - Nora Perry
