Were You The Sea - Poem by Gordon Tseng

(To enjoy the song for this poem, please see the poet's profile for the website.)


Were you the sea speaking eloquently in May,
I would be the waves singing whatever you say.
Were you the wind that loves to travel far away,
I would be the sand wandering through wherever you stray.

Were you the philosopher thinking in the sunshine,
I would be the world you explore and try to find.
Were you the poet who's writing and drinking wine,
I would be the imagination flying with your mind.


-from GOD BLESS NOT ONLY AMERICA

    Beautiful poem Gordon....

    When you the wind that like to travel far away,
    i would be the sand wondering,
    through wherever you stray.
