Skyscrapers by Rachel Field

Do skyscrapers ever grow tired       Of holding themselves up high?        Do they ever shiver on frosty nights     With their tops against the sky? Do they feel lonely sometimes,         Because they have grown so tall?              Do they ever wish they could just lie down And never get up at all?
