Barely At Night - Poem by Ali AlMajnooni

Barely at night, when eyes are surely shut,
And so are the doors,
Stand by your window, and listen to what
Moon is telling shores.

Wide open your eyes, and stare at the sky
That golden stars spot.
Look at the place where sea is running high,
And dark walks on foot.

Pace to your orchard, and among the gloom,
Sniff sweet-smelled flowers
That the gentle breeze has spread their perfume
In the late night hours.

Barely at night, if my heart lies a-sleep,
Come to me, a guest,
Sweeten my dream, and before the day’s peep,
Let your touch off my breast.
