فوزي معلوف

(1899-1930 / زحلة)

لففت ذراعي حول خصر حبيبتي

لففت ذراعي حول خصر حبيبتي
كما التف حول الصخر عاشقه النهر

فمالت إلى عنقي فملت بلهفةٍ
إلى عنقها والخصر يدفع الخصر

وكنا وجسمانا لصيقان واحداً
وصدراً كلينا في اعتناقهما صدر

وقبلتها والنفس مني مشوقةٌ
وما زلت حتى ذاب بالقبل النحر

وما هي إلا برهةٌ فمشى بنا
نعاسٌ فنمنا نوم من ناله السكر

سكرنا ولم نشرب من الخمر جرعةً
ولكن أحاديث الغرام هي الخمر

ولم نخش عما كان لومة لائمٍ
فمن حبنا العذري قام لنا عذر

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
