Reflections of a Sojourner

These are my reflections as I complete my TDY at the Damascus Embassy.

Reflections of a Sojourner

With your glowing nighttime fountains
And awesome towering mountains
With your tiled courtyards and ancient houses
City walls and winding alleys

These are the memories of the sojourner

Mother of cities

Whose people find providence in all things

Where gifts are given liberally
And glasses constantly refilled
You promote the life of the spirit
You are a great city

You are the product of love
