I Would


I’d wait ten thousand clicks
to see you again

I’d tell nine hundred stories
eat one million lemons
ride three thousand ponies
fight two hundred lions.

I would harpoon a seagull
if it meant I might see you.
I’d hold it close and hike
a mountain to the sun.
I would offer its clean body
to the sky.

And I would remind the sky
of the dreams I send
by night, to fold round the moon.

Still, it would not be enough.

  1. Wow. You’ve created excellent visuals here. I liked the bit of silliness inherent in riding three thousand ponies, and the contrast at the end that it would never be enough. Though I must say my favourite part is the whole fourth stanza. Perfect mental picture. Well done!
