I wish


I WISH
I wish I could be as free as the mighty intelligent gray wolf
always running never staying in one place for to long

I WISH
I wish I could be as beautiful as the red rose
watching people pass by not seeing my beauty

I WISH
I wish I could see the world as the mighty eagle sees it
I want to see the world by flying high in the sky
watching people let theri lives pass them by

AND I WISH
people would just slow down long enough to see the beauty all around them
and just enjoy what they already have

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
