THE CALL OF THE DESERT, by            
First Line: Camels kneeling in the desert
Last Line: But to desert-dwellers known.
Subject(s): Deserts; Food & Eating

Camels kneeling in the desert,
Arabs calling this their home,
Hills of sand are daily shifting,
Sun relentless, haughty, burning,
Glaring, from a flaming throne.

Only men and camels venture
To subdue this thirsty waste;
Maybe here they see a beauty
But to desert-dwellers known.
