To Fly, in Short,

To Flap My Arms Until I Rise

A Painting to Fly Away Upon

In Gus Kahn’s lyrics to his 1927 song, Persian Rug, he writes:

“On my Persian Rug,
I can stray, far away,
Into the land of my dreams
On my Persian Rug,
wishes too, all come true
On my Persian Rug,
cares of day drift away
Leaving the gold of my dreams”.

I ask, is not a painting a flying carpet
to carry you away?
