Excerpt from The Caliph's Secret and Other Verses

The Caliph's Secret.

Haroun-al-raschid often walked
Disguised, through haunts of men,
And gained fresh knowledge, as he talked
With each poor citizen.

Full many winding ways obscure
Haroun-al-Raschid saw,
And with a justice swift and sure
Upheld and kept the law.

Amidst the splendors of his court
He dazzled all mankind;
And yet he welcomed at his port
The poor, the maimed, the blind.

Though courtiers frowned, in high disdain,
His answer, firm and low,
Brought ever mercy in its train:
"I and my people know."

Haroun a secret stronghold had,
A tower of massive stone,
Where none might enter, good or bad,
Save just himself alone.
