There in the budded musk,
Sanded brown at dusk.
Defiant pillars to the winds,
Bountiful strength within.
Alone – in the hot, thick night,
Nought but downy dunes in sight.
There go the silent shepherds,
In their slow, musky herds.
Hail – the dromedary! Creatures quite extraordinary.
Camelus dromedarius, gentle and mysterious.
