In The Garden Of Dates short poem

In the garden of dates, autumn is in love,

With the crowning glory of sky blue above,

Bringing the fruits of this October day light,

I saw your splendor in the misty dawn slot,

You appear in a shadow of musical silence,

Embracing the warmth of nature’s diligence.
