The diary of a Victorian photographer
1865, 27 June, Mapledurham, Dagon Residence
“This way, Sir.”
I followed the stout, elderly lady up the polished mahogany staircase that led the way up from the entrance hall to the mansion’s second floor. The woman appeared to be somewhere around her 70’s. She wore a black ankle-length twill dress with long sleeves, a white apron, tied in a neat bow at the back and a matching white bonnet – all quite typical garments for maidservants these days. Such uniform clothes served as a sort of brand, like the ones on livestock. They distinguished the working class from their masters. I pitied the poor women. Somehow it didn’t seem fair to be constantly reminded that you were considered “lower class”. Then again, being treated as such in the first place wasn’t fair either.
We reached the top floor, turned right and walked down a long hallway to a huge closed double wooden door. The maid then pushed both wings open, revealing the interior of

So here's a poem I wrote. I'm not that good at writing poems, I know, but this one just popped in my head while I was drawing the sketch below and it literally compelled me to finish it. So... I hope you like it! :D

Life in a cage by artlover327

A bird was stuck in a cage,

its heart filled with quiet rage.

And each day that passed by,

it kept on wondering why.


Why was it destined to stay,

alone every night and day,

when his brothers and sisters flew,

high up there, in the endless blue?


"What must I do to earn

the freedom that I so yearn?"

it asked the world every time,

its voice - a wonderful chime.


But no one heard its plead,

no one paid it heed.

They let it shed its tears,

and live a life full of fears.


They let it feel left out,

its mind clouded by doubt.

They let it feel such pain,

it thought life was in vain.


And letting out its final breath,

its wish got granted by death.

'Cause on that faithful day,

its spirit finally flew away.
