My treasures do not clink and gleam,
They glisten in the sun and neigh at night
"In the beginning, God gave Ishmael, son of Abraham, a gift, made of mist and dust, as a reward for Ishmael's faith and dedication to the God of his father. Out of the mist and dust came the first Asil Arabian mare, who was at the time in foal, and produced a son. From these two gifts from God came the beginning of the Asil (pure) Arabian horse." (Whitman Legend and Reality of Blue Star Arabians).
