I would sail on a wooden blue boat
with a flag waving in the wind
I would jump a fast-moving train
whooshing over the land
I would pilot a small plane
over and above the clouds
I would tunnel under the earth
where the ants crawl
I would go bravely into the
great unknown as long as my dog is beside me
