Remember that magical evening
We were guided to the elephants
and fed them sugar cane
Walking in mystery and through
the darkness in anticipation
Our curiosity did not wane
We followed our guide to the clearing
as the fantasy continued
and we feasted on epicurean delights
Music played teasing our emotions
Sights and sounds touching every sense
It was a most seductive night
They brought us lanterns  
to release into the sky
each one carrying a desire
A wish and hope
for good things to come
As they soared higher and higher
