Day 7 ~ Let's Write an "If I Were..." Poem


Day 7 ~ Let's go from "I Am" to "If I Were"

This is another "fill-in-the blanks" style of poetry that is quite fun. It's not as long as the "I Am" poem of Day 6 (nor as mentally taxing). Enjoy!!


These are simple and fun. Just use your imagination and fill in the blanks:


If I were a __________________,
I’d _____________________ and
I’d _____________________ and
I’d ________________________.
I’d be ______________________.

OK, I'm fresh out of ideas right now, so this is STRICTLY to be an example, but the possibilities are endless. So, for what it's worth, here is my lame effort and I'm NOT going to sign my name to it - I'm hoping I'll come up with something better later on in the day. I KNOW you will. :)

If I were a new little kitten,
I’d drink my mother’s milk and
I’d chase my tail in circles and
I’d purr in your lap while I slept.
I’d be content.

Your turn!!

I didn’t see this on FF, so here is my try posted here. Actually here are 2 tries at this.

If I were a monkey,
I’d be sitting in a tree and
I’d be eating a banana and
I’d be chattering away.
I’d be as happy as could be.


If I were an instrument in the Lord’s hands
I’d be as busy as could be and
I’d be serving others who really needed me and
I’d be learning charity and the pure love of Christ
I’d be a true friend in someone else’s life.

If I were a willing servant of the Lord,
I'd tell others of the Gospel and
I'd let them know the truth and,
I'd want them to be happy.
I'd be a faithful missionary
