On An Infant Which Died Before Baptism

'Be, rather than be call'd, a child of God,'
Death whisper'd!--with assenting nod,
Its head upon its mother's breast,
The Baby bow'd, without demur--
Of the kingdom of the Blest
Possessor, not inheritor.

    The baby dying so young - still innocent of all the trappings of life - did not have to 'regain' by redemptive grace the heaven it had never forfeited.
