And an orator said, "Speak to us of Freedom."
And he answered:
he drank wine all night of the
28th, and he kept thinking of her:
the way she walked and talked and loved
the way she told him things that seemed true
(Translated from the French by Edouard Rodti)
My wife with the hair of a wood fire
With the thoughts of heat lightning
Freedom, as every schoolboy knows,
Once shrieked as Kosciusko fell;
On every wind, indeed, that blows
I hear her yell.
You waste the attention of your eyes,
the glittering labour of your hands,
and knead the dough enough for dozens of loaves
of which you'll taste not a morsel;
They tell me
'Freedom is never free.'
I know that-
More than most realize.
How delicious is the winning
Of a kiss at love's beginning,
When two mutual hearts are sighing
For the knot there's no untying!
All I want is freedom
Is that too much to ask
All I want is freedom
To forget everything in my past
What freeman knoweth freedom? Never he
Whose father's father through long lives have reigned
O'er kingdoms which mere heritage attained.
Though from his youth to age he roam as free
Freedom, you are the pride of Bengal
Freedom, you are the right of Bengali
Freedom, you are the light of life path
Freedom, you are built with the blood of Bengali!
Stop it! Quit being hypocritical about freedom
What type or what kind that you are talking about?
Be serious! Keep on talking about freedom
Until you drive me to boredom
Freedom to give.
Freedom to live.
Freedom to question why.
The bells of freedom are ringing.
If I could touch that sacred brass,
Just beyond my desperate grasp.
I see,freedom seized with bravery,
Though many, too varied,
No one knows, nobody,
Freedom of a sneeze
Freedom to burp
Freedom to be shielded from hurt
Freedom and freedom,
Freedom from poverty
Freedom from religion
Freedom from life itself.

Freedom is not "turn me loose, so I can go out and raise hell."
Freedom is "release me, so I can help others and do well."
Freedom is not "I don't have to be quiet, just because you want to sleep."
Freedom is "I can do what I want so long as quiet I keep."
