Kagome, Kagome (かごめかごめ)

A Poem by Regan Meade

This was inspired somewhat by the children's game


Kagome Kagome



A caged bird sings

         A little one cries,


         A caged bird swings

A little one sighs,


A caged bird sees

         A little one hides,


         A caged bird flees

A little one rides,


A caged bird flies

         A little one is hopeful,


         The caged bird is alone

The little one has withered,


Who stands behind you now?
