My poem / video Get Well card for Elisabeth Frizl, whose story in the news deeply upset and moved me.

(for Elisabeth Fritzl)
Sara L. Russell, May 11th, 2008

Reclaim the sky, the shape of every cloud,
The gradient of sunsets, red to gold;
Release the thoughts you dared not say aloud,
Relinquish fears too terrible to hold.

If we could buy a mansion by the sea
With miles of free horizon in full view,
Where comorants, like girls' daydreams, fly free,
Elisabeth, we'd give it all to you.

You ran away, he dragged you back again
- All those who knew were too afraid to say.
He built a home of drudgery and pain,
Where daydreams never see the light of day.

Through courage you are now at liberty;
Reclaim yourself and find serenity.

A very fine work. Very touching, from the heart. I really could see the imagery in this poem because it was heartfelt. A very heartfelt recite, too. Very good work. Sara
