Were I so tall?

  
Were I so tall to reach the pole,

or grasp the ocean with my span; 


I must be measured by my soul:


The mind’s the standard of the man.



Were I so tall to reach the sky

I would have no need for wings to fly


beyond what my eyes can see


or my mind can ever begin to grasp.




Were I so tall to reach so high 

it would be to the highest limb


to cradle the tiny red robin perched there


within the palms of my hands.



Were I so tall, if only I were so tall!!!!  

But since I’m not 


I will continue to strive and reach up and out


for the unattainable that is far beyond 


and the attainable that is just within my grasp.
