I dreamed a dream of Samarqand

by bernardtwindwil

I dreamed of a city in the sand In present day Uzbekistan They called this city Samarkand It was in the Satrapy of Sogdian

There strode Achaemin til 329 When Alexander came to dine Persians expanded the shrine Genghis Khan sent it to decline

Here the tomb of Tamerlane Splendidly built in his reign The silk road its domain

I walked among the streets Savored ancient sweets I slept in a conquerors suite

Then I woke up in Omaha
