Classic and Contemporary Poetry
ROOF BOUND, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: You watch me primly sewing here
Last Line: Where road and blue sky meet!
Subject(s): Hearts; Home; Love
You watch me primly sewing here,
But you would never guess
How far my vagrant heart has fled
From this palin aptterned dress.
You think this house holds all of me
Within its painted walls,
And never guess a part of me
Runs where the high road calls.
You see my stitches deftly neat,
Yet you may never know
If some gay strolling lad should ask
How very quick I'd go.
I'd lay my silver thimble down
And run with singing feet
Till I had come to that far place
Where road and blue sky meet!
