Fitne's Gesang
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
   Draußen im Sandbrand
Schlagen die Männer sich
Fern bis zur Strandwand;
Einsam hier weile ich.
 
   Wonne und Schmerz lebt,
Wechselnd in rascher Gluth;
Wie mir das Herz bebt,
Heiß mich durchrinnt das Blut! --

Confirmed with Bilder des Orients von Heinrich Stieglitz, Erster Band, Leipzig, bei Carl Cnobloch, 1831, page 8.
