I wish I were a dragon,

So I’d have wings to fly,

Up and up I’d soar,

Until I touched the sky.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were a unicorn,

Running to and fro,

And with my long alicorn,

I’d make the world my own

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were a wolf,

Respected and feared,

So when I approach my enemies,

They’d dare not be neared.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were an oak tree,

Standing mighty and tall,

Looking down on the world below,

Hoping I won’t fall.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were a rose,

Red like the heart’s blood,

A romantic sight to most,

But not while stuck in mud.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were a goddess,

Wise beyond my years,

Looking down on the earth below,

Crying people’s tears.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were goshawk,

Flying high and free,

Nothing to stop my spirit,

From the world I long to see.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I were flower,

Blooming in the spring,

Being admired and cared for,

When the bell will ring.
