Where the Blue Begins

Author: Christopher Morley

To Felix and Toto

"I am not free—
And it may be Life is too tight around my shins;
For, unlike you,
I can’t break through A truant where the blue begins.

"Out of the very element
Of bondage, that here holds me pent, I’ll make my furious sonnet:
I’ll turn my noose
To tightrope use And madly dance upon it.

"So I will take
My leash, and make A wilder and more subtle fleeingÄ
And I shall be
More escapading and more free Than you have ever dreamed of being!"
