If I were but an eagle,
...and you an eagle too,
We'd rule the world as king and queen,
...that's just what we would do,
Unfettered wings of feathered glory,
...silhouettes against the sky,
Our realm from foaming seashore,
...unto the mountains high,
We'd soar upon the whispering winds,
...beyond the farthest cloud,
The sun and moon we'd leave behind,
...as to the gods we bowed,
If I were but an eagle,
...and you an eagle too,
I'd take you in my dreams at night,
...and make sweet love to you.

Ah.....don't think I can top that one Mike and not even sure I should try, but I do love these poems and they tend to inspire me in a time where I can use all the inspiration I can get....so here goes  


If I were but a sparrow
...Here is what I'd do
I'd perch outside your windowsill
...And sing sweet songs to you
I'd nest high in the grand old oak
...That stands outside your door
And watch you from a distance
...Wanting even more
I'd greet you in the early hours
...With a sweet melody
And welcome you again each night
...As you came back to me

If you really give a hoot
..Here's just what you will do
Next time your computer's on
..Authorize my ICQ......
