New Dawn

Ibn Masud

When the Carpet is cut apiece!
When the Bulls withdraw their wings!
When the Glory is gone asunder!
When the Chariots do not thunder!
When the Emperor kneels
before the shepherd,
And the Prophecy has been fulfilled!
And the Land of the lion and the sun,
Has been overcome
By the new Dawn in the west,
Brought on the back
of humble camels.
