Arabian Poetry, by W. A. Clouston, , at sacred-texts.com
LIKE sheep, we're doomed to travel o’er
The fated track to all assigned;
These follow those that went before,
And leave the world to those behind.
As the flock seeks the pasturing shade,
Man presses to the future day;
While Death, amidst the tufted glade,
Like the dun robber, * waits his prey.
134:* i.e.—The Wolf.
