Life XXXVI. I never hear the word “escape”

Part One: Life

 
               XXXVI
 
I NEVER hear the word “escape”  
Without a quicker blood,  
A sudden expectation,  
A flying attitude.  
 
I never hear of prisons broad
By soldiers battered down,  
But I tug childish at my bars,—  
Only to fail again!
