Epitaph On A Child

Rating: 4.5
Here, freed from pain, secure from misery, lies
A child, the darling of his parents' eyes:
A gentler lamb n'er sported on the plain,
A fairer flower will never bloom again:
Few were the days allotted to his breath;
Now let him sleep in peace his night of death.

The note of pathos, the mood of lamentation is poised by a sense of peace that is the mark of potential of a truly perceptive poet.
