IF I COULD STAND ON THE MOON

          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.

                    Keith Garrett
