The Lighthorse

The Lighthorse.

We'd long since left Khalasa on the Gaza's desert tracks
We'd taken Tel es Saba and all places at our backs
We'd conquered sand and searing heat on Walers Aussie bred
Till there across the Wadi Sabah - Beersheba lay ahead

It's fabled mosque and water wells we'd read from days of old
The railway line off to the left where other wadi's rolled

[Hata Bildir]
