When I grow up, I'd like to be
A big strong rover out at sea
A sailing on the ocean tide
To see the big world far and wide
But then I also wish to fly
A whizzing jetplane in the sky
I'll make a loop and zoom and dash
And come to land without a crash
Oh! how many things I'd like to do
Like building houses big and new
How very happy I would feel
If I could build a bridge of steel
I'll try to do these if I can
When I become a full grown man!
It's amazing that I can still clearly remember all the words on this poem from my 4th grade, English subject. It stays firmly on the back of my mind. I'm sorry, I don't remember who wrote this poem. Anybody who knows this poem? Please leave a comment. Maybe if I was a boy, this would be my dream, too.
