Ode to the great blue sky
Oh, how I wonder why –
Am I inside

They say “an institute for learning”
With always the yearning
To be outside

The walls feel ever closer
Think I can focus? No, sir.
Trapped inside

The bell rings, time to escape,
Dashing for the door looking like an ape
I am outside

Dreamy. I love the flow and just about everything else. This piece "spoke" to me, if that makes any sense. Its relatable, but has a little mystery. Fantastic!

Very beautiful. I love your flow-rhythm and patterns as well.
Not to hard to understand but still keeps a bit of mystery, I love that in a poem!
