Oh to Be Free

Look at those birds, they are staring at me.

What must it be like to fly around free?

They hop through the bushes and peck at the fruit,

They sing in the treetops, like whistle and flute.

I glance round my cage, it’s so stark and so bare,

A bell and a mirror are all I have there.

I’m such a bright colour and they are so dull,

The sparrow, the blackbird and even the gull.

I wish I was out there, flying round free.

I’d sing in the sunlight, up there in the tree.

    Sharing a Post

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
