If I Were:

Ever since I saw this on Shelagh’s blog…I have wanted to do this meme…so here goes:

If I were a month, I’d be October…

If I were a day, I’d be Sunday

If I were a time of day, I’d be Midnight

If I were a font, I’d be Ariel…

If I were a sea animal, I’d be a star fish

If I were a direction, I’d be east

If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a very sleek and modern chaise lounge

If I were a liquid, I’d be amaretto

If I were a gemstone, I’d be an amethyst

If I were a tree, I’d be a Sugar Maple…

If I were a tool, I’d be a pair of scissors

If I were a flower, I’d be a lilac…

If I were an element of weather, I’d be a beautiful snowflake

If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a well loved and played guitar…

If I were a colour, I’d be Turquoise…

If I were an emotion, I’d be happiness…

If I were a fruit, I’d be a sweet juicy pineapple…

If I were a sound, I’d be the tinkle of windchimes

If I were an element, I’d be silver…

If I were a car, I’d be a well-ridden mid-60s Chevy Malibu

If I were a food, I’d be roasted veggies and a baked ham…

If I were a place, I’d be a lovely floral garden on a sandy beach shore looking at a mountain range…

If I were a material, I’d be soft flowing silk

If I were a taste, I’d be a combination of spices – spicy and cool…

If I were a scent, I’d be ginger and orange…

 If I were a body part, I’d be a soft caressing hand…

If I were a song, I’d be 80’s Ladies

If I were a bird, I’d be a Robin…

If I were a gift, I’d be everything you ever wanted!…

If I were a city, I’d be Paris…

If I were a door, I’d be mostly open…

If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be a pair of well-worn sneakers…

If I were a poem, I’d be…

 Annabel Lee by Edgar Allen Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea:
But we loved with a love that was more than love –
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her high-born kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me –
Yes! that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud one night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we –
Of many far wiser than we –
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling -my darling -my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea –
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

    Fantastic!! So many of yours would be the same as mine. I’m not much into poetry but I do like that poem and always have.

    This is interesting. As I read through your answers, I tried to think what I’d put for mine. I totally get “Paris” – unfortunately, I’d probably be…ummm… Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan or some other desperate place. haha.

    Hi Sara
    This was fun to read!
    I was surprised you’d be scissors and not a knitting needle, as you knit so well!
    I’ve always loved Annabel Lee and Edgar Allen Poe!

    Thank you for your e-mail –it was such a busy weekend and I am very behind and trying hard to catch up!

    What FUN answers to read…I might have answered some of them in the same way. I did have to laugh at your “place” answer as it seemed like you can’t make up your mind between beach and mountains and flower gardens!!! LOL
