The Caged Bird

Maya Angelou’s The Caged Bird is one of my favourite poems and it immediately came to mind when I saw the image.

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.
- Maya Angelou

The Caged Bird
Natalia Tour (b.1972, Russian painter) – Little Bird

  1. Such a heartbreaking image comes to mind upon reading the poem! 🙁
    But I also feel, aren’t we all sometimes like that bird, held in different cages, of fears, of anxieties, of people’s expectations…? The list is endless.
