MAGIC CARPET RIDE - Taken from the book of poems Simply Magical

Where the wind beneath the carpet is riding you high
Way up high with the birds and butterflies
The swallows and swifts
Swooping, diving to catch a small prey on the wing
There in the distance Swans on the wing too
Maybe off to warmer climates or just enjoying the view
The sky shining brightly hardly a cloud in sight
The sun rays gently, softly letting themselves be known
Oh such wondrous colours and a delight
Pinkish salmon, with a hint of yellow
But here you sit on your magic carpet
Smiling, smiling
With such wonder that is here and there
The ground and land beneath
Lush green meadows
Steep, steep hills and burrows
River and streams meandering
Twisting, turning, zigzagging
Through the fields, horses paddocks and pastures
Near and far
Oh such a sight before your eyes
The gentle breeze blowing through you hair
Purple rosebuds adorn and prettify your hair
As if you are a princess sitting there
Glancing at a kingdom, realm
Or is this just your world?
To live and dream
For once upon a time
