If I could try objects I would enter a tree,
and reach my limbs outwards to hug you to me.
If I was a tidal wave cruising the sea,
I would put my face on it,
to show you it was me.
If I was a giant rock I would roll down a hill,
and the rush of the ride would give me a thrill.
If I was a tall building I would take a walk round,
and shock all you people down there on the ground.
If I was a lamppost lighting your way,
I would walk along with you to see what you say.
If I was a mailbox you were putting letters into,
I would suddenly say thank you to see what you do.
If I was your car I would take you for a drive,
you could sit back and relax knowing your vehicle is alive.
If I was an aircraft flying people through the air,
I would flap my metal wings to give you a scare.
If I was a cloud floating high in the sky,
I would suddenly glide down just to say hi.
If I was the river I would give you a splash,
but water is busy and I really must dash.
There are so many objects I would just love to be,
so watch where you walk,
you could be standing on me.
