Poems (1901)
II. Talisman
By Katharine Tynan Hinkson (1861–1931)
ALL heaven in my arm.
The child for a charm
’Gainst fear and ’gainst sorrow,
To-day and to-morrow.
The child for a charm        5
Betwixt me and harm.
O mouth, full of kisses!
Small body of blisses!
Your hand on my neck
And your cheek to my cheek.        10
What shall hurt me or harm
With all Heaven in my arm?
