If Only I Could Fly

If only I could fly,
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t see.
The world couldn’t pass me by,
It’d barely keep up with me.

There’s nothing that I wouldn’t see.
I’d soar around the planet.
It’d barely keep up with me,
I would pilot lands that span it.

I’d soar around the planet.
I would rocket to the moon.
I would pilot lands that span it,
Then I’d be gone too soon.

I would rocket to the moon,
Ascending toward the sun.
Then I’d be gone too soon
On to my next mission.

Ascending toward the sun
With my sights upon the stars.
On to my next mission,
Navigating quasars.

With my sights upon the stars,
The world couldn’t pass me by.
Navigating quasars,
If only I could fly.

 

After I thought I completed this poem, it occurred to me: if I add stanzas detailing each “stop”, it might make a decent children’s book. So, add that to the list of open projects. Finish this poem as a children’s book. Find someone to illustrate it.
