First Line: Shoheen, sho-lo: birds are homeward winging
Last Line: And the streams of quiet flow.'


SHOHEEN, sho-lo:
Birds are homeward winging.
Shoheen, sho-lo:
Herdsmen on the hills are singing:
'Short the night, and long the day,
Come, ye weary flocks away:
Folded in deep shadows drowse,
And on long sweet grasses browse
Where the murmuring waters flow.'

Shoheen, sho-lo:
Hark, the Bell-branch ringing.
Shoheen, sho-lo:
Danaans from the hills are singing:
'Time is old, and earth is grey --
Come, ye weary ones, away,
Where, with white, untroubled brows
The Immortals dream and drowse,
And the streams of quiet flow.'
