First Line: Fearing my father
Last Line: Perhaps wisely.
Subject(s): Freedom; Obedience; Liberty


Fearing my father,
I sat still at table
When the boys came up the alley
Calling:
"Come out! Come out!"
And I hated the discipline
Which held me there
Foolishly.

Loving my mate,
I sat still at home
When Life came up the alley
Shouting:
"Come out! Come out!"
And I hated the tenderness
Which held me there
Perhaps wisely.
