Birds
By Richard Henry Stoddard (1825–1903)
 
BIRDS are singing round my window,
  Tunes the sweetest ever heard;
And I hang my cage there daily,
  But I never catch a bird.
 
So with thoughts my brain is peopled,        5
  And they sing there all day long;
But they will not fold their pinions
  In the little cage of Song!
