I’ve  been given these wings for my birthday
My ears just aren’t quite big enough,
I can fly in my dreams,
But on waking, it seems
That I’m too big for this sort of stuff.

I really am quite disappointed;
I can’t seem to get off the ground,
I watched Dumbo do it,
And thought, “nothing to it,”
But I’m too heavy, too fat and too round.

I'm not built for flying either! (Just as well as I don't like heights)

A delightful Magpie ... a lot of what ifs to ponder.

Frances Garrood said...

Excellent! I knew you could do it!

Patsy, I don't think I'd mind flying with my own wings but I think aeroplanes are an accident waiting to happen.

Hi, Helen. Thanks so much Oh, yes, if only!.....

Frances,thanks. too kind. I didn't know I could do it.

Hello, Tess. You say the nicest things
