In The Summer Poem by Nizar Qabbani

In The Summer

Rating: 3.3

In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you
Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
Its shells,
Its fish,
And followed me.

The romance this poet convey in his poems is more the the ability of the heart to bear.

To picture the ocean leaving its bed and walking behind the love-struck poet, as a poodle would trot behind its master, is a ridiculous image
