Theme: Yearning

I Want To Be

How I wish, to trade places
with the little devil Tom Sawyer,
painting and jumping fences
and living naughtily for ever and ever.

Yearning to fly over those mountains green,
that Wordsworth traveled ever so frequently,
the valleys where daffodils abound
Taking in every smell and sound.

Would be grand to work in Orsino's court,
playing the humble beauty Viola,
disguising myself and the love too
plying messages to rival Olivia.

Or else I'll do something new,
change places with beautiful few
Scarlett O'Hara would be the one,
Whose real self only Rhett Butler knew !
