Dance On the Wind
If I could I’d swallow the ocean!
And eat the sky!
Or eat the ocean…
and paint the sky!
If I could I’d listen to the Earth!
And sing to the storm!
I’d stomp down a mountain…
and shout out a parade!
If I could I’d sigh 100 rivers!
And laugh from every drain!
I’d feed the stars fish!
And pocket the sun and moon!
If I could I’d roll the planets…
in a game of marbles,
at a bully,
If I could, I’d outrun speed…
and shout louder than sound!
I’d throw EVERYTHING into the air!
And catch everything that falls!
If I could I’d wash away all sorrow,
and bottle all tears…
I’d ask everybody to join a carnival I’d made!
If I could, I’d set free every zoo…
and run with the heard!
Build a rocket…
and talk to all birds!
I’d dance on the wind…
and nibble on a dragon’s tale!
If I could, I’d watch movies projected onto clouds,
whisper the world’s smallest sound,
ride a balloon with no basket…
and be glad you are here.
