Dance of the Djinn


Aaron faheud Swiftrunner            



Chorus:
Oh to great desert adrift in the sands
Wondrous the tales in these ancient lands
Wondrous the tales by fire til dawn
Of Masters and Magic and Great Sulieman
Verses:
Come and you hear music begin
Out in the desert a dance of the djhinn
Out in the desert a revel til dawn
Laughter in halls of Great Sulieman

Carpets in flight from down on a floor
Commonplace lantern making uproar
Well counted thieves in well hidden lair
Ali the servant—or princeling—in there

Few there are who can claim to know
Where the spirit of Sinbad may go.
Where the spirit of Sinbad yet sings
Of quiet power in forgotten rings

Empire stretching from Tygris to Sea
Empire calling her lore out to me
Empire calling of songs long ago
Take me to Persia where such things I’ll know

Come see the lore well told on the page
Of Scimitar flashing and Genie’s dark rage
Come see the victor in forgotten fight
Come feel the magic in one thousand nights
