If You Had Such Wings

from Language for the Living and the Dead
new poems by Chris Ransick

 

 

If you had such wings, then where?
Soar, circle, dive, hover,
come back down to Earth from the air.

Does a body dream better up there?
Imagine the wind as your lover.
If you had such wings, then where?

Fly away and until you’re aware
the horizon is all we discover.
Come back down to Earth from the air.

Come back to the bed you share.
A gift means the most to the giver.
If you had such wings, then where?

At the table, your empty chair
can wait for you forever.
Come back down to Earth from the air.

Live as you are, if you dare.
Let your feet know the ground you cover.
If you had such wings, then where?
Come back down to Earth from the air.
