A Child's Book

sand & minaret
place of myth mystery
destination of pilgrim & trader

gold blazed by sun
on turbans & burnous
camel trains riding east

I hear shrieks of drivers
cries of salt miners
watch slaves in seven veils
dance into paradise
on hashish wings

all alive in reading
The Arabian Nights
under the bedclothes
