If I Were...

If I were a language, I'd be French, so elegant and flawless.

If I were a color, I'd be orange, encouraging bright smiles everywhere.

If I were a cursive letter, I'd be a capital 'L' with its graceful loops.

If I were a food, I'd be chocolate, so luscious and creamy, drawing people in.

If I were a subject, I'd be writing, letting people express their thoughts and opinions.

If I were a city, I'd be Chicago, skyscrapers sprinkled with a thin layer of dazzling snow.

If I were a season, I'd be Spring, blooming with vibrantly colored life.

I wrote this poem after a really fun day!  I hope you all imagine each line as if you really were those things!

Love the idea of this. It's very imaginative and you have really managed to connect things such as languages, letters, color, seasons etc. to a type of idea and feeling. Great flow and coherence.
