Footnotes

    Private UK collection.

    'By Baghdad's Shrines of Fretted Gold
    High-Walled gardens, green and old.'

    Recollections of the Arabian Nights, Alfred Tennyson

    'Baghdad!! Is it a city or the echo of a name,
    The abode of dreams or in itself a dream?
    Harun carved its minarets out of the turquoise green that matched the sky.
    Tomorrow you will laugh at the jest of a to-morrow when you seen Baghdad.
    There is no to-morrow there or here.
    Beyond the stars it is always yesterday.'
