The New-born Baby's Song

When I was twenty inches long, 
I could not hear the thrush's song; 
The radiance of the morning skies 
Was most displeasing to my eyes. 

For loving looks, caressing words, 
I cared no more than sun or birds; 
But I could bite my mother's breast, 
And that made up for all the rest.
