Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Freedom is the wind that blows
It is in the horses wild..
Freedom is like the sea
The laughter of a child...

Freedom is the breaching whale
It is like the clouds above...
Freedom is in the horseman's ride
The flight of the dove...

Freedom is the wilderness
In the deer, the eagle's flight...
Freedom is a spirit
A thing for which men fight!

Freedom beats within each heart
Of every man and beast...
A yearning for all things living
The biggest and the least...

Freedom whispers to the slave
To the animals in cages...
Freedom's voice will never die
It has called down through the ages!

Freedom is a thought, a song
A precious gift worth giving
Freedom is each heart's desire
It makes life worth the living!....

(C) M. Linda Steffey 1990
