FOUR STANDING POINTS OF OLD
"South gate that points to old Khalil,
High portal for Gethsemane,
Damascus door, we knew thee well,
And thy low arch, O Mograbi!
"How oft we watched your walls at dawn,
Queen city of Judea's height,
And saw the heralds of the morn
Lightening the last of night;
John Doody, June 1958
