   The Wishing Game

     I always thought that
A wishing well was
A rather odd place to put
A wish.
     It's just as odd as serving soup on
A plain, flat dish.
     You see, I'd think that for
A wish
Someplace way up high, is where
A wish
Would come true, if one would want to try.
     There is a game,
"The Wishing Game" that
I like to play. It's
What I do when I've just had
A disappointing day, and
     It goes like this;
I close my eyes and concentrate on
What I want the most,
Then wish and,
One! Two! Three!
I throw it to an endless sky
Up - higher, higher, there! - A star!
- A diamond with my name,
Forever pending in the air
- With only I who know it's come.
     Watch - I'll try, for real, this time
I wish I would never eat, and hunger was a stranger ...
One! Two! Three!
And I throw it to an endless sky
Up - higher, higher, there! - A star!
- A diamond with my name,
Forever pending in the air
- With only I who know it's come.
