First Line: If I were asked to take my pick
Last Line: But I should choose white unicorns!
Alternate Author Name(s): Sinjohn, John
Subject(s): Unicorns


IF I were asked to take my pick
Of all the creatures fantastic,
Gryphons and Phoenixes and such,
Dragons and dolphins, and the much-
Reported serpent of the sea,
Vampires, whichever they may be,
March hares, mad rabbits, or the Sphynx,
Or all the many missing links --

Well!

There's something to be said for fauns --
But I should choose white unicorns!
