IF I COULD BE A POET

Written by: Vernette Hutcherson

If I could be a poet
And write like poets do
I'd write a whole book of poems
And dedicate it to you

I'd write about lost love
And dreams that don't come true
If I could be a poet
And write like poets do

I'd write such pretty pictures
With words of every hue
If only I could be a poet
And write like poets do

I don't want to move mountains
Or swim the ocean blue
I just want to be a poet
And write like poets do
