Captives
written by William Henry Davies
From "Songs of Joy", 1911 Link to further information




In this deep hollow, lying down,
I, looking up at Heaven, can see
You pretty little clouds shut in
By green hills all around - like me.

And all you simple, little clouds
Seem glad at my captivity:
Without a thought that I can smile
As much at you as you at me.
