Coconuts and Fish and Birds

Coconuts and Fish and Birds

If coconuts could grow on trees
and birds could fly
and fish could swim.
What a wonderful world we’d all enjoy,
what a wonderful world we’d all live in.

If every line I wrote could rhyme
and poetry spilled from my pen,
I’d write about the things I find
and how,and why,
and where,and when.

If everything I wrote made sense
there’d be no interest in my words.
That’s why I write,and love the world,
and coconuts,
and fish,
and birds.

Ivor G Davies

    If (watch out, all the reviews you recieve on this poem may begin with if) I had to decide which of your poems I like best it would take me a very long time. p.s. is that 'f' in your title a misspelling?

    If I could rhyme as well as you // and wow the world with poetry // I'd also write of birds that flew // and fish and coconuts on trees. Nice one, Ivor. You're not mentioning it, but I hope you intend submitting this smooth piece to the "What if" contest. :))
