I wish that I could be a bird.

That I could fly, that I could sing

That I could touch untouchable peaks,

That I could forget the roads of this earth

And never return.

I would bathe in holy wells,

Swallowing great gulps of bountiful water.

I would sit on the shore of a great lake

And sing a halting song. I would go into a flowering wildrness

And inhale the perfume-laden air.

I would warm the mountain peaks, frozen by centuries of coldness, In a close embrace.

I wish that I could be a bird.
