This came to me while I was listening to Camel's song "Sanctuary". Or more accurately...listening the Camel the Snow Goose Compilation and the time between 11:05-12:25. I am telling you this because I don't quite remember if the guitar part before it is part of the song.

I recommend beginning at the part where it changes to the high pitched (flute?) while reading if you have it.

It's meant to be long enough for you to listen to the song while reading it.

Yes its all italics. But it's meant to be treated as a dream.

i

Peaceful desert

Blissful desert

Lonely desert

No one around…

ii

Where is anyone?

To enjoy the sun

iii

Sandstorms

Barrel through

iv

A little boat

Fighting the sand

v

Rides the dunes

Once again

vi

With no one

To steer it through

vii

Where does it go

No one knows

viii

Little do we know

About the Sand Boat

Here it comes

To see us all

ix

Cutting through the wind

Leaving

It's mark

On the desert sand
