On Flying out of Portland at Night

My forefathers didn’t ever see
This golden carpet, bright unfurled,
The pictures in its tapestry,
The lights and lives of the moving world.

Other beauty to them was given,
Though our joys are one it seems,
For this delight that I am living
Was woven from their dreams.
