Treasure Island

Wish I Were A


Going down hill with arms open
Rapidly flying towards the Sun;
I wish I were a bird light and small
Soar up to sky and enjoy a great fall;

Grabbing a frond, swinging up and down
Throwing feet up making faces as a clown;
I wish I were a monkey smart and agile
Could summersault in air with amazing style;

Rolling on grass across the lawn
Shouting and shaking as a baby-new born;
I wish I were a squirrel quick and agile
Head and tail up run I with amazing style;

Jumping into a stream from its brink
Down into the water I begin to sink;
I wish I were a fish with no hands and feet
Come I up and into air jump in delight;

Receding afar light years away
Behind the clouds when it is all day;
I wish I were a star that twinkle at night
At the break of dawn I go out of sight;

Sitting in my garden under a tree
I often think to make myself free,
From the din and bustle of daily affairs;
To live and die in peace under Nature’s cares.

Poem of the Day

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
