محمود درويش

(1941-2008 / الجليل / فلسطين)

الدانوب ليس أزرق

هي لا تعرفه
كان الزمان
واقفا كالنهر في جثّته
قالت له
عندي مكان
كان ذاك اليوم صيفيّا
و كان العاشقان
يستردان من الرّزنامه الأولى
حساب الشمس
كان الأمس
و الحاضر كان
هي لا تعرفه
قالوا لها: يأتي مع النهر
الذي يأتي مع الفجر
و كان التوأمان
ضفتي نهر.. يسيران معا
أو يقفان
و هما..لا يعرفان
كان ذاك اليوم حقلا
من ذبول وحنان
و عما يقتربان
و يموتان من الموت
و لا يلتقيان
هي لا تعرفه
لكنها تشربه كالماء في رمل الزمان
بعد عامين من الهجرة
في الهجرة
في انفجار القبلة الأولى
و في جثّته، كان الزمان
واقفا كالنهر في جثّته
قالت له
عندي مكان

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
