Treasure Island

Aimanu Begum


I Am No Caged Bird


I laugh
A thousand springs rush
Down the mountain slope
The swing of my hips as I walk
Ripples in the calm water of the lake
I am no caged bird
Women envy my freedom
Men swarm around me
Enchanted and cluttered
No wisdom in my words
Nor subdued hints of passions
They clamour for my voice
I talk they listen
Smile at my words
Make silly demands
Content to lie at my feet fawning
Tongues hanging out
Saliva dripping down
Eyes rolling in the sockets
Bark like dogs ready to bite
As I turn my back and walk out
Stepping over the straggling group
Again I laugh aloud
A thousand springs rush down
I am no caged bird.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
