Treasure Island

سعدي يوسف

(1934 / العراق)

الليلة لن أنتظر شيئاً

أنا لن أنتظرَ الليلةَ شيئاً
هو ذا القطنُ الشتائيُّ يغطي ساحةَ القريةِ
والطيرُ الذي ظلَّ يزورُ الكستناءَ ارتحلَ
الأشجارُ لا تهتــزُّ
والنافذةُ الوسطى التي تمنحُـني إطلالةَ الـبُــرجِ ، تغــيمُ
الآنَ تأتي عدنٌ بالبحرِ
تأتي عدنٌ بالـسَّـيـسَـبانِ الـحُـرِّ والأسماكِ
تأتي بالأفاويــهِ
وتأتيني بما يجعلُ هذا الكونَ ملتـفّـاً على جمــرتــهِ ؛
أنـظـرُ في المـرآةِ
كانَ الشخصُ يدعوني إلى شــاطئهِ
مثلَ الغريــق

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
