The Fledging
By Iris Barry
  THE FIRE is nearly out,
The lamp is nearly out.
The room is untidy after the long day.
I am here, unhappy,
Longing to leave the hearth,        5
Longing to escape from the home.
The others are asleep,
But I am here, unhappy.
The fire is nearly out,
The lamp is nearly out.        10
