I Remember When I Was Born
                       - Pearl Buck

I remember when I was born.
I do remember!
Through eternity I slept.
By its quiet waters swept,
In the silence safely kept.
All unknowing, night or day,
All unthinking, there I lay.
Suddenly, by life compelled,
I was free, no longer held,
Free to hear and feel and cry,
Free to live, or free to die;
Free to be that which am I.
I remember when I was born-
I do remember!
