Last Line: Lightning with the crescent moon?'
Alternate Author Name(s): Abu Salt Umayya; Abu I-salt Umayyah


My white charger rode to war
Shining like a meteor,
Stepping proud and stepping bold
In his saddle-cloth of gold.

As he trotted after me
To the field of victory
Cried my rival, envious
Gazing open-mouthed at us:

'Who has bridled, if you please,
Dawn with the bright Pleiades,
Or who saddles this high noon
Lightning with the crescent moon?'
