Hello perkypat-ga,

I believe that the poem you are looking for is ?Da Leetla Boy? by
Thomas Augustine Daly.  It starts as follows:

?Da spreeng ees com?! but oh, da joy  
  Eet ees too late!  
He was so cold, my leetla boy,  
  He no could wait.?

You can read the entire poem at the following links:
