I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings |  Caged Bird

A free bird leaps on the backOf the wind and floats downstream Till the current ends and dips his wing In the orange suns raysAnd dares to claim the sky.But a bird that stalks down his narrow cageCan seldom see through his bars of rageHis wings are clipped and his feet are tiedSo he opens his throat to sing.The caged bird sings with a fearful trillOf things unknown but longed for stillAnd his tune is heard on the distant hill forThe caged bird sings of freedom.The free bird thinks of another breezeAnd the trade winds soft throughThe sighing treesAnd the fat worms waiting on a dawn-brightLawn and he names the sky his own.But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreamsHis shadow shouts on a nightmare screamHis wings are clipped and his feet are tiedSo he opens his throat to sing.The caged bird sings withA fearful trill of things unknownBut longed for still and hisTune is heard on the distant hillFor the caged bird sings of freedom.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings |  Caged Bird

A free bird leaps on the back
Of the wind and floats downstream
Till the current ends and dips his wing
In the orange suns rays
And dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
Can seldom see through his bars of rage
His wings are clipped and his feet are tied
So he opens his throat to sing.

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.

The free bird thinks of another breeze
And the trade winds soft through
The sighing trees
And the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright
Lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
His wings are clipped and his feet are tied
So he opens his throat to sing.

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.

Corn, Dark , No. 1
Georgia O’Keeffe 
(American, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin 1887–1986 Santa Fe, New Mexico) 
Date: 1924
Medium: Oil on wood fiberboard
Dimensions: 31 3/4 x 11 7/8 in. (80.6 x 30.2 cm)
Credit Line: Alfred Stieglitz Collection, 1950, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Accession Number: 50.236.1


Description from the Metropolitan Museum of Art:  ”In the summer of 1924, O’Keeffe painted three pictures, using the same color schemes and narrow formats, to depict the corn stalks growing in her Lake George garden. More than fifty years later she remembered “the light-colored veins of the dark green leaves reaching out in opposite directions. And every morning a little drop of dew would run down the veins into the center of this plant like a little lake - all fine and fresh.”
