We too


We too
Here or there inside
Whether on plains or inside just
A cage
As caged birds
We
Always have a heart
That beats
And so long
As it beats our tongues
Voices and thoughts
And verse and chants.

We too
Be like night birds
Though
Oft and by large prefer
At night to sleep
Yet
In our hearts
Even if so sleep
There the Sub-Conscious beats

We too
With the Sub-Conscious have
The root
Of all of us
Our dreams our ideas our deeds
And
These combined
Our thoughts and more
Civilization to all peoples addressed.
What is more of the root to human race?
We too

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
