Cage

CAGE

Free was that bird to fly
away at length at large;
so tell me, tell me why
she flies back to her cage?

You too, my love, set free
long cruel from your chains—
why, tell me why you creep
back to your ancient sins?

The fight, I let you win it
and doused your deadly fires.
For what? Dog to its vomit
back, swine back to its mire?

No, no, let it not be—
Not for this I set you free!
