Zz 269 As If I Ruled The World - Poem by Edward Wright Haile
You love me just as if I ruled the world,
as if I could make any mountain rise
or tell the placid ocean to be curled,
as easily as cup you butterflies.
I could do this and not command your love
unless I’m honest and affectionate.
Therefore no ruling eagle but a dove
I hope I am and your commanded pet.
Let me move ridges upward and an ocean
for you aside, if thus your shy proposal;
and lightly by the strength of my devotion
please you to accomplish the colossal,
but wish we both were giants who could heave
these tasks aside for hours they should leave.
