Please help to identify author and name of a poem
I want to find who wrote a poem. I remember just part of it.
"if I had the wings of a bird, the fins of a fish
as well as the legs of a deer, I would ramble,
i would fly, I would swim if I wish ,
but i"d certaily look mighty queer."
Try putting those words into your browser with the word poem.... you may fu=ind something.I've never hear it before!
The complete poem is as follows:
If I had the wings of a bird of the air
And the fins of a fish of the sea,
I could travel with speed and abandon all care,
I could ramble the wide world free.
The wings of a bird and the fins of a fish,
As well as the legs of a deer—
I could fly, I could swim, I could run as I wish,
But I’d certainly look mighty queer.
Author: R. Amor
Thank you too! Those words were crawling in my head several days and I could not remember where it came from. :-)
You are welcome Pavlo. I'm happy to help anytime.
I found it in this book "Fonética y Fonología del idioma inglés ii" (page 118). Seems to be an English pronunciation guide. http://www.unmsm.edu.pe/educacion/licen … tica_2.pdf
It doesn't credit an author. Maybe it is sort of like a Mother Goose folk rhyme with an unknown author.
If I had the wings of a bird of the air / And the fins of a fish of the sea, / I could travel with speed and abandon all care, / I could ramble the wide world free. / The wings of a bird and the fins of a fish, / As well as the legs of a deer— / I could fly, I could swim, I could run as I wish, / But I’d certainly look mighty queer.
Sorry, can't help help you Pavlo, but I put the following into Google search:
legs deer fins fish wings bird poem
and got 12,000,000 hits-- and YOUR question was number one!

Dear Religious Hubbers.I've been reading your bible in an effort to understand why the religious forums here are so full of aggressive, hating, people.I think I've found the answer, because the bible is a very strange document that sanctions all sorts of violent acts and behaviours. I've posed some...
