They shut me up in Prose – (445)

They shut me up in Prose –

As when a little Girl

They put me in the Closet –

Because they liked me “still”   –


Still! Could themself have peeped –

And seen my Brain – go round –

They might as wise have lodged a Bird

For Treason – in the Pound –


Himself has but to will

And easy as a Star

Look down opon Captivity –
