    Prayer before Birth I am not yet born; O hear me. Let not the bloodsucking bat or the rat or the stoat or the club- footed ghoul come near me. I am not yet

      Prayer before Birth

      I am not yet born; O hear me.
      Let not the bloodsucking bat or the rat or the stoat or the club-
      footed ghoul come near me.

      I am not yet born, console me.
      I fear that the human race may with tall walls wall me,
      with strong drugs dope me, with wise lies lure me,
      on black racks rack me, in blood-baths roll me.


      (first two of eight stanzas)
