   English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
207. A Child’s Grace
 
Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
 
HERE a little child I stand
Heaving up my either hand;
Cold as paddocks though they be.
Here I lift them up to Thee,
For a benison to fall        5
On our meat and on us all. Amen.
