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

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
