If Only I Had Wings

If only I had wings -
 Do you wonder what I'd  do?
 I would fly as high as the highest
 and then I would tickle the moon!
And then when the  sun
rose in the sky
I would soak in her gentle rays
and I would spread the rays
as far as I can see
 and still further-- forever and ever.
I'd hide in billowy
purpley clouds
 play peek a boo with all the little flowers
and you!
If only I had wings,,,,
I would sit in all the tallest trees,
and chirp like little birdies
I would fly across the seas and oceans...
So many things that I would do-
if only I had wings!

But I have  four little paws
and a tail that wags
 I run and jump and giggle
and I dream
about so many precious things-
things that really matter-

And then I remember
 I am the tweedles
 and I am happy
with who I am.
You are you
and I am me
and that is how it should be.

Hello, my Sweet.
You story of flying reminds me of my thoughts when I was much younger. I imagined the clouds held another world, even more beautiful than this one. And I still look at clouds and imagine ... maybe ...

I always look forward to a good Tweedles post!

Pawsome poetry Tweedles. If we could fly we'd swoop down and catch some squirrels. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

good morning my twee!

oh but you are even more special because in addition to your wonderful grounded little paws and tail that explore our earth for us to see, your words are our wings that just took me with you flying everywhere!
i could feel the the fresh air in my lungs as you sang you poem to me! I saw the ocean, the birdies and the tops of all the trees!

you do have wings!

i love you!

I could send you one of our birdy boxes if you did live in a tree... it would keep you snug at night.

Oh, gosh, I think you have wings, dear Tweedles! You always take me away.

Payton's mom said...

What a great day dream, Tweedles! If I had wings, I'd fly to you so we could spend the day together. :-)

Chatty Crone said...

Awe Tweedles - sometimes I wish I had wings too - to see new things to fly away from my troubles - it's a dream. And there is nothing wrong with dreams.

On the other hand - you are okay just where you are.

Hugs, sandie

I do agree,

and I am me!

Tweedles you always bring delight and joy! I wish I had wings only so I could fly to your house and touch noses and share our friendship in person. Thank you so much for being so comforting and understanding to momma.

That was beautiful Tweedles. I was thinking that, if you had wings, you could come visit us! But I loved your ending. You are wonderful "you"!

Oh Tweedles, how I have missed your lovely words. It would be wonderful to have wings ...I would fly right out to see you if I had wings.

Your pal, Pip

Beautiful. I've had moments when I also wished for wings.

Tweedles, it makes me so happy to be me, when I have a pal like you, who is happy being you. Between you and me, we can dream of adventures on Owlberts back and fall asleep and dream together. Tweedles you are the best you I have ever know!!

I really thinks you already have wings, that you don't need to wish for them. In your magical forest you can already do all those things as you are keeper of the forest. Just close your eyes really tight and imagine it... before you knows it you are flying with the stars and resting on a cloud. Wings don't need to be visible for you to have them!
