In far, off lands from a star
An otherworldly traveler has come far
With shining eyes and a curious dream
To Earth they've journeyed or so it would seem.
On this planet of green and blue vast
many wonders to explore and grasp
But one particular marvel stands grand
To share with this extraterrestrial hand.
In the heart of a citys embrace
Where daylight fades into nights space
With music, laughter and vibrant hues unfurled
Let me tell you the tale of Mardi Gras, my friend!
Beads and masks in a parade they display
In New Orleans memories are made every day.
Floats adorned with feathers and exquisite flair
A spectacle that's beyond compare.
To the melodies of jazz filling the airwaves wide
The dances without any stride.
Spinning and swirling in delight
They immerse themselves in the festivals light.
With beads, around their necks and a joyful grin wide
They blend into the crowd like an ocean tide.
Catching trinkets as keepsakes to hold
Symbols of Earth that will forever be near.As the first light of dawn peeks through the sky filled with stars
The extraterrestrial being says a heartfelt farewell,
Expressing gratitude, for such a spectacle.
They gracefully glide among the stars disappearing into the night.
The spirit of Mardi Gras lingers in their thoughts,
A memory of a benevolent world
A vibrant celebration embracing lifes magnificent stage
In the enchanting heart of New Orleans, where dreams forever flourish.
