BOUNTY, by            
First Line: Tis no matter to amaze
Last Line: To evoke its song of love?
Alternate Author Name(s): Abu Salt Umayya; Abu I-salt Umayyah

'Tis no matter to amaze
If thy gifts outstripped my praise,
Or thy bounty overfilled
This my vessel, ere it spilled.

Is the branch not robed in green
Long before its fruit is seen,
And must we not ring the dove
To evoke its song of love?
