    Unlike "I am woman," the line was in my mind unattached
    until I looked up its provenance.

    The song coming from the bird was Maya Angelou's story?

    Yes, I have always kinda wondered 'why' after her poem ... Never was too sure. I had ideas, like, that reflected back onto me.

    I like this for what I think it says/means. Thanks Johntee!

    started a topic Cage Bird

    Cage Bird

    Cage Bird


    I thought I knew

    why the cage bird sang.

    Through bars of steel

    and stony wall

    I thought it felt the pull

    of spring.

    Now I see,

    contained and free

    the song was Maya’s story

Working...
