A childless woman hears

    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."

[Hata Bildir]
