Every day so lovely, shining,
Up and down, the Sultan’s daughter
Walked at evening by the water,
Where the white fountain splashes.
Every day the young slave stood
By the water, in the evening,
Where the white fountain splashes,

'Every day so lovely, shining, Up and down, the Sultan’s daughter Walked at evening by the water, Where the white fountain splashes. Every day the young slave stood By the water, in the evening, Where the white fountain splashes, Every day grew pale, and paler.' loved the sparkling happiness of these lines and the turn with the slave growing paler and paler because he loves the Sultan’s daughter; he is from the tribe that dies when they love; haunting with the beauty of impossible love.
