With me along some Strip of Herbage strown That just divides the desert from the sown, Where name of Slave and Sultan scarce is known, And pity Sultan Mahmud on his Throne.

Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse—-and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness—- And Wilderness is Paradise enow.

And pity Sultan Mahmud on his Throne.

A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse—-and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness—-
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.
