My Cage

- by Cary Hopkins Eyles

My cage has a big window
For that I am lucky
I see the trees
And the sun as it sets
On their beautiful leaves
I imagine the scent of the breezes
That I long to feel
I pound on the glass
But the window does not budge
They have made it immovable
For if I could open the window
If I could smell the night air
If I could feel the coolness of fall
If I could catch the leaves
How would they keep me in?
