A Gilded Cage - a Duo-rhyme

Written by: Sharon Ruebel



A gilded cage with heart so pure
her lessons here she must endure,
sadness and pain her life has shown
with golden bars a place called home.
A lonely place for one to be
beyond the bars she may not see
still longing for her love's embrace
no longer can she see his face.
His journey took him far away
a pipers price she could not pay
as time goes by and tears they fall,
could he have been her love at all?
