The Wild Goat

The Wild Goat

O you would clothe me in silken frocks
And house me from the cold,
And bind with bright bands my glossy locks,
And buy me chains of gold;

And give me meekly to do my will
The hapless sons of men:
But the wild goat bounding on the barren hill
Droops in the grassy pen.



Poem The Wild Goat - Claude Mckay
