Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

In spook-tabular news, Kimberly J. Brown from Halloweentown has her own Etsy shop. The shop is called Craftily Creative and it’s filled with Halloweentown-themed things. If you ’90s kids can believe it or not, it’s been just over two decades since the Disney classic aired. And since our nostalgia can truly never be sated, this is very exciting news for us.

Brown spoke to Bustle magazine over email about the project. “I started he shop about 5 years ago with my good friend Liz because we loved crafting together on the weekends and thought we’d share some of our projects. It started with gift tags, greeting cards, and custom paintings with different quote, etc. Slowly people started requesting different quotes from Halloweentown on painted signs so we started carrying them in the shop.” One fan-loved quote from the movie: “Being normal is vastly overrated.”

Brown even turned the quote into a graphic tee! Craftily Creative currently has 35 items available, many featuring quotes from Halloweentown. She has also received a lot of love from fans. “Nw we get suggestions all the time and the sweetest notes from fans thanking us for making our stuff and telling us what the movies mean to them. I have really loved getting to create with the fans over the years in our shared love for the movies. It’s also a way for me to kind of pay homage to the fans and these films that have meant so much to me and another avenue for me to keep creating when I’m not filming and working so we’ll keep creating as long as the fans will have us.”
