Arab Love Song*


The hunched camels of the night** Trouble the bright
And silver waters of the moon. The Maiden of the Morn will soon Through Heaven stray and sing, Star gathering.
Now while the dark about our loves is strewn, Light of my dark, blood of my heart, O come ! And night will catch her breath up, and be
Leave thy father, leave thy mother
And thy brother
Leave the black tents of thy tribe apart
Am I not thy father and thy brother.
And thy mother?
And thou—what needest with thy tribe's black
Who hast the red pavilion of my heart?

* p. 4
