The Captive Dove

by Anne Brontë

In Anne Brontë's poignant poem, "The Captive Dove," the reader is drawn into the heart-wrenching plight of a caged dove, its spirit yearning for the boundless freedom of the open sky. The dove's plaintive moans echo through its confinement, its wings fluttering against the invisible barriers that imprison it. The speaker, moved by the dove's longing, empathizes with its captive state, recognizing the deep-seated desire for freedom that resides within all living creatures.
