If Only I Were a Bird

If I were a bird

I’d be a Chickadee,

And live high up in a big spruce tree.

If I were a bird
I’d be a Snowy Owl
With the night woods for a home.

If I were a bird
I’d be a Sand Hill Crane
And dance in a fresh-mown field.

If I were a bird

I’d be a glossy black Raven

And live at the edge of town.

If I were a bird

I’d be a red-breasted Robin

The orchard is where I’d thrive.

If I were a bird

I’d be an Eagle

With a nest on a cliff by the sea.

If I were a bird

I’d be a Starling

And live wherever I pleased.

If I were a bird …

If I were a bird …

If I were a bird, I’d be free.

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
