One wept whose only child was dead,
New-born, ten years ago.
"Weep not; he is in bliss," they said.
She answered, "Even so,
"Ten years ago was born in pain
A child, not now forlorn.
But oh, ten years ago, in vain,
A mother, a mother was born."
A true sad poem, the saddest poem ever, since: do YOU KNOW HOW it feels to have been born a child, not alive but dead? I don´t know, but I feel the great sadness after having read the poem only ONCE. WHY? Because I have birthed three babies and all healthy and alive and she..? Only one child birthed and dead. IF the chilf though dead, was never born then a mother in her was never born too. Smartest thoughts and smartest worded.
She never knows motherhood if the child was never born. Motherhood, an easy word, but precious to bear and a pride to have got this predicate. True delicate, but it be so. She is a poetess of thought provoking poems. CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as The Classic Poem Of The Day, dear family of Alice Meynell. I love this poem so much.
This poem is on sadness gives the readers impressive thoughts. It justified to be chosen as the poem of the day.
not now forlorn.........a mother was born."

The most tenderest and sincere sense of pathos marks this poem.
for her child even the lost child!
One of the best poems I've read in recent times! 10/10.
A mother was born in pain. The poetess felt that pain. This poem is the outcome.
Dead children are never forlorn, to a 'mother'.
One knows how deep the pain of death and loss must be.
New born! ! !
