Have You Time For A Carpet Ride
Reader Star Rating:
Have you time for a carpet ride,
Just before you go to bed?
The stars are bright, and the moon is right,
With the clouds perched overhead.
Take my hand and come sit right down
On this Persian rug of old;
And watch it rise, right before your eyes,
As its creases all unfold.
Pass the ledge, we'll lift way up high,
With the falcons in the air;
And feel the breeze, as we watch the trees
Far beneath weaved camel hair.
Over peaks, we'll see lakes below,
That will glisten from the stars;
Then whisk to sights of big city lights,
Spying streets and tiny cars.
As we turn high above the clouds,
While we fly home and descend;
You'll feel the thrill, as rug stops at will,
And the ride comes to an end.
Back in bed, you'll drift off to sleep
With the carpet by your side;
Where in your dreams, you'll see lights and streams
From the magic of your ride.
