Birds of Passage
Flight the Third.
Vox Populi
 
WHEN Mazárvan the Magician
  Journeyed westward through Cathay,
Nothing heard he but the praises
  Of Badoura on his way.
 
But the lessening rumor ended        5
  When he came to Khaledan,
There the folk were talking only
  Of Prince Camaralzaman.
 
So it happens with the poets:
  Every province hath its own;        10
Camaralzaman is famous
  Where Badoura is unknown.
