A Wish

I have never travelled so far As to catch a falling star. I've never seen so great a thing As China's Great Wall or Victoria's Falls. I've never been to Rome or Spain Nor touched the Amazon's rain. Yet I know that they exist, As real as the earth and sea. And though I've never caught a falling star I've wished upon one from my rusty old car.
