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!
