o'er dusky faces, dark eyes burning with love, great viziers,
stout mandarins, princesses and learned men. And then later,
returning home, my story strange to relate to those who believe
in dreams, from time to time raising up my old Arabian cup, like
Sinbad of yore, just to my lips, only to break off the tale with
II. La Flute Enchantee
"Cool the shade and deep my master's sleep, wearing his soft
silken conical cap, His long yellow nose in his snow white beard,
But I, who patiently vigil keep, can hear far away sweet music
of a flute which creates in turn a yearning to laugh and to
weep, A tune which my own beloved doth play. And when I
draw near to the casement high, Then each note doth hither fly
from the flute to touch my face like a mysterious kiss."
"Soft as a maid's those sad eyes of thine, 0 youth unknown, and
the noble curve of thy classic features newly shaded with down
looks far more seductive still in line. And in the song which at
my door thou dost sing, speaks a tongue unfamiliar yet dulcet,
Like a music false in ring. Enter! Perhaps a cup will lend thee
spirit. But no, thou goest; So from my threshold I see thee
depart with a graceful sign to show you'll not tarry, And with
a hip ever so lightly bent by a step as of a girl who's weary."
