You are correct, in the sense of correctly thinking that your answer is the wrong one :P

I keep looking back at this and can't work out any of the allusions (like Glaurung said).  Also I have no idea who Murad is.

Blown glass, spun gold,
Coloured marbles, pink clouds,
Swans, mice, flowers, bowls,
Something pretending to be something it's not.


... I never have any idea how hard or easy I make these :'D

Whilst we wait for Jubal here is a nice (hopefully) easy one:

Before the new day breaks, I will be most strong
Some people might doubt you - but then they'd be wrong

If you don't comprehend, whatever you do
If you don't know but try, then I surround you,

You could look at the moon, I'm hidden - but there
Where could I be then? Perhaps anywhere

Right, finally wrote one. Probably a bit easy, but I felt it was a pretty rhyme:

I send my letters every year,
On parchments yellowed with their age,
I throw them up into the wind,
Unread, they scatter, page by page,
But when you write a letter, then
I write no more and I am gone;
For from my body, limb and heart,
Is made that which you write upon.
