9781331150800: The Perfume Holder and Other Poems (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Naishapur, two hundred years ago, Inviolate from the galling Turkish foe, Like a warm opal dropped from Allah shand, Lay glimmering on the green Khorassan land. Girdling the South, the deserts sandy coil Strangled the verdure and oppressed the soil; But East and North the languorous noon-day breeze Lifted the leaves of lime and tamarind trees Over the hills, within whose broken row The gleaming city watched the river flow. A long the camel track from I spahan, Came tinklings of the nearing caravan, Trailing its parched, dust-cumbered passage down Into the market of the wealthy town. Piercing the vibrant ether, bold to view, A hundred minarets burned athwart the blue; The purple roofs of mosques, like sunset isles, Blazed all their panoply of porcelain tiles, While from the walls the names of Allah shone In many a scrolled and squared device of stone. Color and light loomed everywhere; their glow Burnished the booths and houses, row on row; They flamed across the palace court-yard flags And blazoned even the cringing beggars
