If I could

If I could, I’d spread my arms and change them into wings
Embrace blue skies with fearless flight as feathers grew
And gaze upon the world that was once so small and all I knew

If I could, I’d swing through mazes of twisted branches
Sliding down the snaking trucks of tall trees
Hopping to the next one with such agility and ease

If I could, I’d race across the snowy tips of the mountains
And with pounding paws and pounding heart run all afternoon
Then, as night fell cast my head back to howl at the harvest moon

One thought on “If I could
