by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

If a mouse could fly
Language: English 
If a mouse could fly,
  Or if a crow could swim,
Or if a sprat could walk and talk,
  I'd like to be like him.

If a mouse could fly,
  He might fly away;
Or if a crow could swim,
  It might turn him grey;
Or if a sprat could walk and talk,
What would he find to say?
