Ibn al Haytham - The First Scientist - Alhazen - Ibn al Haitham - Alhacen  


Noon's lost. Underbelly midnight,
Wide as Heaven, falls
From the shadow of His gallop.
His hoof-on-rooftop rolls
Call steeples to attention
That He might strike them down,
And dark dustings of His loins
Inseminate the ground.

The Storm Horse reigns!
May our homes remain.
The Storm Horse reigns!
