    If a poem can take you to an imaginary dream world this poem very well does that. (Report) Reply

    This to me appears to be an Englishman's idealised version of Arabia. However, well written.+++10 (Report) Reply

    Makes you want to go to the mystic place called Arabia. Love the phrase “in the brooding silence of night.” Lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    This is a poem that lingers on in my memory for more than fifty years. It was first taught to us in the 7th grade by my beloved English teacher G.T.R.Perinbanayagam in my school Trinity College, Kandy Sri Lanka. The sheer magic of words and the imagery it evokes have haunted me ever since. Whether such an Arabia existed or not doesn't matter.The vision of the poet about the music and the gliding streams and lush banks set in the background of an Arabia unknown still is mesmerizing.
