'Come Fly with Me'

Today's prompt from Carry on Tuesday is Sinatra's famous Come fly with me.


“Come fly with me, to that alluring shore,
Where summer never ends, the sky is blue,
Where birds are free, and you will cry no more…”
“I cannot fly with you, my heart is true
To the forgotten land of ancient kings,
The gloomy skies, the only joy I know…
My silver bird has spread its metal wings
She’ll take me back to winter, cold, and snow.”



Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur

  1. I'd have opted for the blue sky and romance any time.
