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 … More If I could
