Mahmoud Darwish

Nostalgia To The Light


What Annoying the people if we walked in the light of day
And carried your handbag and umbrella
And took your mouth at the corner of the wall
And picked a kiss
your Eyes
I dreaming to see your eyes sleeping
to see the calm of the sea at sunrise
your Lips
I dreaming to see your lips when kissing
I see the sun flare in the birth of a wedding
What upset the night if I have lit two candles
and I saw your face washed by the beam
And saw the river of Ivory guarded by the Marble of boats
then I will be back to childhood to breastfeeding
From the well of my tragedies, calling your eyes
To carry the Vintage of brightness to my veins
What annoying the people if I put my head between your hands and cuddling your Waist in the road

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
