Can You Chain Me?


so I can’t escape?
Close all the windows.
Shut the drape.
Hold me tight
and never let me go.
For I don’t fear the capture
will frighten me
as much as the thought
of you setting me free.

What would I do if I were free?
I’d ask to be sentenced once more.
And you my love, could chain me
just as you did before.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
