INFANCY
[ Also see Babies Babyhood Beginnings Birth Children Middle Age Old Age Youth ]

'Tis aye a solemn thing to me
  To look upon a babe that sleeps--
    Wearing in its spirit-deeps
      The unrevealed mystery
        Of its Adam's taint and woe,
          Which, when they revealed lie,
            Will not let it slumber so.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

A young star, who shone
  O'er life, too sweet an image for such gloss,
    A lovely being scarcely form'd or moulded,
      A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Joy thou bring'st, but mix'd with trembling;
  Anxious hopes and tender fears,
    Pleasing hopes and mingled sorrows,
      Smiles of transport dashed with tears.
      - Joseph Cottle

The hour arrives, the moment wish'd and fear'd,
  The child is born by many a pang endear'd
    And now the mother's ear has caught his cry;
      O grant the cherub to her asking eye!
        He comes--she clasps him. To her bosom press'd
          He drinks the balm of life, and drops to rest.
      - Samuel Rogers
