"Camping"-inspired poetry

At dusk, we heard a whip-poor-will and Ramona was enchanted.

Early the next morning, she composed and recited to me:

It's so beautiful here
If only insane, I could be a whip-poor-will.

I had to ask twice if she was actually saying, "insane." She confirmed that yes, indeed, she was.

"As in, 'crazy'?" I asked.

"Yes, Mommy. Insane."

Okay. Just checking.

Such a sane poem, don't you think?
