#NationalPoetryDay Freedom Poem by Alan Cadman

The Forest’s Call


Staring with jewelled eyes;

stretched on a sturdy branch.

Concealed in panther black,

feeling the forest’s call.


A child, licks on ice cream,

looks through the zoo’s steel bars;

wishing to stroke his fur

before moving along.
