If you should ask me what I want-
About my hearts desire....
Twould be to share with all the world
What sets my heart afire.

Twould be to tell the dreams of mine
Which dwell within my soul-
Of tropic island paradise-
And arctic beauty cold.

Of depths of space, expanse of land-
A million unnamed stars-
The often spoke of Milky Way-
And Jupiter and Mars.

The beauty of an island dawn-
The sea give birth to sun-
The lovely desert evening-
When the day is nearly done.

The beauty of a maidens face
When once she falls in love-
Nobility of human race-
Which art and music proves.

The darker side of human woes-
The heartache and the loss.
Of those who "leap before they look"
And never count the cost.

If I could do what e'er I want-
I'd feign your heart inspire-
Communicate, emotions stir-
The Poet's one desire.
