“A young gazelle there is in the tribe, dark-lipped, fruit-shaking,  flaunting a double necklace of pearls and topazes,  holding aloof, with the herd grazing in the lush thicket,  nibbling the tips of the arak-fruit, wrapped in her cloak.  Her dark lips part in a smile, teeth like a chamomile  on a moist hillock shining amid the virgin sands,  whitened as it were by the sun's rays, all but her gums that are smeared with colyrium - she gnaws not against them;  a face as though the sun had loosed his mantle upon it,  pure of hue, with not a wrinkle to mar it.”

36 Compare Poetry Shakespeare 1600’s:
“My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun ;     Coral is far more red than her lips' red. I have seen roses, damask'd red and white,     But no such roses see I in her cheeks “ Yazid 800’s: “She is radiant. The sun would be ashamed to rise again on anyone if it only saw her… Pearls rained down from her Narcissus eyes, the roses of her cheeks and her wine-red lips.”
