Oh that I had wings

Oh that I have wings to soar upon the wind
alight upon a building and watch the folks below
sleep upon a mountain top surrounded by the stars
I’d build my nest in the branches of a majestic old Oak tree
I’d traverse the world upon a whim, let nothing hold me back
When I tired of traveling I’d select another treeImage




I’ve been very blessed, places I have visited, things I got to see
Eiffel tower in Paris, Moulin Rouge, Tour de France, Le Mont Saint Michel
Sherwood Forest, the Black Forest of Austria, and Oxford University
Flea markets in Brussels, Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid, most of Germany
Blenheim Palace and the seals in the North Sea
I find that in the twilight of my life, home is where I want to be
my only regret is that I have no one to share this life with me
