Fly Away

Some glad morning when its holiday time, I will fly away to a sandy land, near the red sea in Sharm El Sheik,

Sharm El Shiek

On either side the wind lies,
as the airplane glides over Sinai mountain,
rocks and bare stones reach up into the sky;
leaping above the sandy roads running by,
To a special treat we fly away;
And go down with charm to many people,
laying where the sun lies low,
Around the Red Sea and to the islands below,
we will fly away.

The air is clear, and the sky is blue,
A little breeze tremble and the dusk shiver,
through the heat that runs through like fire,
desert and mountains made the land look dryer,
awaiting camels for hire, ends the thirst for water.
Ships with spices, head scarves and colors,
Sail away over the mouth of cryptic waters,
and the silence of weary night falls,
with darkling shadows.

Up into the clouds, the wings reach out far,
To fly away through the atmosphere,
Barging like a horses drawn carriage through the air,
Galloping into full speed assailed,
Skimming the sky breathing smoke rolled into hale:
And no one can see us waving our hand,
Or share the memories; or even understand,
why we choose to fly away over the land,
and not take the cruise on a ship.
