Evolution seems to have been a generational study among the Darwins.

I've got a second one!

Bury me in a free land by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825-1911)*
Text URL: http://www.theotherpages.org/poems/2001/harper0105.html
Duration: 2:22
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc184_burymeinfreeland_nv_128kb.mp3


*Frances Ellen Watkins Harper was a free African American, born in Baltimore in 1825. She was an abolitionist, orator, poet and novelist who wrote about slavery. After the death of a free man, resulting from his recapture and re-enslavement under a brutal new law intended to reduce black settlement in Maryland, Harper decided to leave her job as a sewing teacher in Ohio and worked full-time for the anti-slavery cause.

"Bury me in a free land" is a very short but very beautiful poem. I hope I did it justice.

The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense-desires,
Is not born again into this world.’
