grasshoppers, butterflies, snakes

I would, if I could
run over that grassy field
high above hunger and thirst
with my arms bathing
in the peach / almond sun
I would, if I could
release thin gray dust
from the sturdy grasses
and bring you worms, mice
grasshoppers, butterflies, snakes
I would, if I could
show you how to smile
how to breathe and laugh,
feel nothing but the breeze
or happiness tied in a bow
I would! I could
