IF I COULD STAND ON THE MOON
From up so high beyond what Is sky, what I might see,
Below motionless oceans, a creation of what was dreamed.
The universe from all around before these amazed eyes,
From where I stand the earth could sit In my hand, visualize.
If I could stand on the moon then the stars I might touch,
A comet speeding on by, a ride on It perhaps In my mind.
Darkness stays here with me as I am In a far off land,
What lives up here all dances In rhythm like a quiet song.
Run I could not but float like a balloon would be this man,
If I could stand on the moon then I would be on top of the world.
