A to Z Poetry - I learned

Josephine Wall

I learned

I learned to fly 
sitting on a swing, 
pumping my legs 
until I touched the sky.

I learned to read 
books filled with 
rhyme and reason,
sitting on my daddy’s knee

I learned to sigh 
reading romantic novels 
full of tragic heroines and muscular gentlemen 
who filled their lives.

I learned to laugh 
in a house full of love, 
and dance and sing
along with the phonograph

I learned to live
as life is quite fragile
and you never know
 when it is going to end.
