Moving In The Desert With The Arabian Caravan - Poem by Hardik Garg (15 yrs)

Struck by awe in the sandy plain
Mesmerised by breathtaking barchans
The picturesque driving me insane
And I enjoying with the Arabian Caravans

Riding and jumping on the ship of desert
Facing woes and sandstorms boldly
Enjoying under an oasis a dessert
The caravan entertaining me wholly

Wearing long robes to escape the sun
Carrying water to quench our thirst
Having together a lot of fun
Having bet on reaching rest spot first

And then at night we set up our tents
And sit around the warm bonfire
Getting delicious food's sweet scent
And feeling it's need dire

We share the tales of Arabian nights
And hear about Alibaba and Aladdin
We wish we had a Genie to resolve our fights
And a treasure to give our faces a grin

We were there in the desert not alone
There were those thorny cactus
And snakes and scorpions that don't spare a bone
We were carefree and we were cautious

Then we lay down in the severe cold
In our tents open from the top
Cozy in our blankets which we tightly hold
And seeing the shiny stars and making time stop

The Arabian experience I feel
Is once in a lifetime you'd ne'er get again
It will sooth you and naturally heal
Take you away in lap of nature away from pain.
