أعطني الناي

أعطني الناي و غنِّ فالغنا سرّ الخلود
وأنين الناي يبقى بعد أن يفنى الوجود
هل تَخذت الغاب مثلي منزلاً دون القصور
فتتبّعت السواقي وتسلّقت الصخور
هل تحمّمت بعطر وتنشّفت بنور
وشربت الفجر خمراً في كؤوس من أثير
أعطني الناي وغنِّ فالغنا خير الصلاة
وأنين الناي يبقى بعد أن تفنى الحياة
هل جلست العصر مثلي بين جفنات العنب
والعناقيد تدلّت كثريّات الذهب
هل فرشت العشب ليلاً و تلحّفت الفضا
زاهداً في ما سيأتي ناسياً ما قد مضى
أعطني الناي وغنِّ فالغنا عدل القلوب
و أنين الناي يبقى بعد أن تفنى الذنوب
أعطني الناي وغنِّ وانْسَ داءً ودواء

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
