Journey The Society September 20, 2012 Poetry 1 Comment By Dan Skorbach If I could talk to trees and meet with mighty lions, If I could ride the winds and gain the moon’s advice, I’d ask how they command the forces of the wild, And how they see the earthly beings through their eyes. If I could climb a thousand crowns of Himalayas, If I could swim the seven seas a distance far, I’d ask whoever lives in the mysterious layers, If I could see the magic dust of a shooting star.
