IF ONLYI wish I could inscribe you human.Your stone-cold heart would beat with sudden rush of life and rhythmic pulses begin their ripple and flow.
Your arms would swing, your feet would stride, your chest would swell with manly pride. I would send you on travels far, to let your gaze light on every star. Touch the stones on wind-swept beach, dreams just within your reach. Taste food from any nation, attain powers of observation.Smell the scent of flowers and trees, feel the warmth of Summer breeze. Hear bird-song from every land and feel a loving partners' hand.
All this, and more, I wish for you, yet I know
it cannot come true.
You must remain where you need to be and forever look upon the sea.
