Abdulaziz Al-Maqaleh Poems
Poem 47 Of The Book Of Sanaa'
The spirit of this city floats On the water of years. Do not wake her Let her moan while her children drown.
My faith in poetry is betrayed, as blood, gushing from the heart of the square, now masks the face of words
By All Means
It' sleeping, it did not die. It will emerge from its sleep (after a year) I tell you, after twenty years
By All Means
It' sleeping, it did not die.
It will emerge from its sleep
(after a year)
I tell you, after twenty years
And it will wash its feet in the blood of kings,
It will dance till morning
And until evening
It will pull out its executioner's teeth and nails
Without malicious joy without despair
