Yehudah HaLevi

(1075 - 1141 / Andulusia)

The Apple


You have enslaved me with your lovely body;
You have put me in a kind of prison.
Since the day we parted,
I have found nothing that is like your beauty.
So I comfort myself with a ripe apple—
Its fragrance reminds me of the myrrh of your breath,
Its shape of your breasts, its color
Of the color that used to rise to your cheeks.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
