What I Wish to Do


I wish to paint
On the canvas of life
Splashing colors of the rainbow
With sweeping brush strokes
Of love and happiness
Joining past and present
Ever so smoothly
With no visible divide.

I wish to play music
On the bagpipe
Of this body
Imitating nature's
Babbling brooks
Songs of birds
Sounds of breeze
And roars of thunder.

I wish to dance
With this body of life
Full of energy and
Strength of the limbs
In synchronous movement
With waving leaves
And waves of the seas
In total harmony.

I wish to open
My beating heart
And create poems
Of colorful splashes
Of rhythmic joy
Of graceful movement
Reflecting nature
And all its beauty.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
