    Poemhunter needs to list the names of translators and also ask for permission to use them: one of my Shawqi translations, " Latitudes Beneath your Lids" , is up here and I took liberty modernizing the narrative: this context needs to be added too.

Best Poem of Ahmad Shawqi

Footprints

I consider life a road
Upon which the masses travel
Toward specific missions
And other goals.
It is not in vain that people frequent this planet
Nor is it for nothing they depart hence.
So, look not down on the world you live in
Nor deny the existence of the one yet to come
But be doubly prepared for your future journey
By living uprightly now and by behaving nobly, too.
And while walking the paths of life
See to it that you conduct yourself honorably:
Listening only to what's worth listening to,
Trying to behold the good in everything.
Be not without ...

A Sail On Tigris River

.A sail on Tigris River expands going forth in front of me
.My tears pray imploring not to viscous event attacks thee
.Glide on the water surface as floatable thing slowly
.Cross the water as the gleam guider that passes gently
.Come in to touch the land as if a heaven it looks eternally
.Maybe it looks as a smart paradise on smiling valley
.Stop to look closely and insure my heart to be safety
.Then I am saved from the gazing of black eyes jealousy
.To be from wine and drinking companio
