If I Could Write Words by Spike Milligan

If you listen to the weekend arts program on Radio National, you may have heard the program on Spike Milligan today. This particular poem touched my tear-ducts.

If I Could Write Words

If I could write words
Like leaves on an autumn forest floor,
What a bonfire my letters would make.

If I could speak words of water,
You would drown when I said
‘I love you.’

Spike Milligan
