I Am Loved By Little Children by Henry Head
Seedtime and Harvest
From Destroyers and Other Verses (Oxford, 1919)


I am loved by little children:

Happy girl and laughing boy

Cast their tender arms around me,

Clamorous with joy.


Baby waking out of slumber

To solitary land

Gathers open-eyed contentment

From my out-stretched hand.


On my arm, he stills his sorrow,

At my breast his wailings cease:

To be loved by little children

Brings me hope and peace.
