And paper lanterns from Pekin
With painted dragons on;
With cocoanuts from Zanzibar,
And pines from Singapore;
And when they had unloaded these
They could go back for more.
And even after I was big
And had to go to school,
My mind was often far away
Aboard the Sh...Read More

...es on the breeze;
They little guess'd each grain of these
Convey'd the perfect charm.
