MORE POEMS BY HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW
- HEN Mazárvan the Magician
- Journeyed westward through Cathay,
- Nothing heard he but the praises
- Of Badoura on his way.
- But the lessening rumor ended
- When he came to Khaledan;
- There the folk were talking only
- Of Prince Camaralzaman.
- So it happens with the poets;
- Every province hath its own;
- Camaralzaman is famous,
- Where Badoura is unknown!
