Have you ever walked outside
Looked up at the open sky
And almost lifted up your arms
To just push off and fly?

Have you ever stared at glasses
As if your eyes would pop
Attempting to with just a gaze
Make them cross the tabletop?

Have you ever closed your eyes
As hard as they would go
To see if maybe you could turn
As see-through as H2O?

The purpose is fun. What's wrong with that?
Not the same version as I read in the 1960's from Favourite Poems to Read Aloud, but certainly a pleasant memory to run across it again.
I found this poem in some papers from my grammar school days.
I remember it from grade school days, in the 1930s. I used to sing my children to sleep with it.
