Two caged birds sing...



Two caged birds sing 
Of foreign lands and kings
We sit amazed at their outpourings
To learn of all that lies beyond , 
Far beyond our mental reckoning.
Traveller ! Your camel rests awhile
At the door step , and you have your songbirds in that cage
Trilling notes that warm our hearts
Two sisters destined
To live within walls that will not break.
Traveller! Do take us with you too
We'd like to say , but no!
The cage is locked---
Not so your door , you say.
