Looking For A Poem

The poem is " No Child" by Padraic Colum. Your text is slightly incorrect; the poem reads:
I heard in the night the pigeons
Stirring within their nest;
The wild pigeon's stir was tender,
Like a child's hand at the breast.
I cried, " O stir no more!
(My heart was touched of tears) ,
O pigeons, make no stir —
A childless woman hears."
