Caged Bird By Maya Angelou


The Bird Fancier – 1878 | José Jiménez y Aranda


….The caged bird sings   

with a fearful trill   

of things unknown   

but longed for still   

and his tune is heard   

on the distant hill   

for the caged bird   

sings of freedom…..

    • Καλημέρα Κατερινάκι μου καλή εβδομάδα να έχουμε!!!!

      Αυτό ξεχωρίζω από τα πολλά κι ωραία που είπε : Η ζωή γουστάρει να τη βουτάνε από το πέτο και να της λένε: «είμαι μαζί σου μικρή μου, φύγαμε».

  1. When Poland wasn’t on the world map, about 180 years ago, the poet Józef Krasicki wrote an epigram “Birds in cage”:
    “What are you crying for?” said young Siskin to the old one.
    You have here more comfortable cage than living in the field. ”
    “Thou you born in that cage, so I can forgive you that” said the olnd siskin;
    I was free, today in a cage – and that’s why I cry. “
