The Blue River - Poem by jan oskar hansen

The Blue River (new version)
Arabic/Andalusia poem
Al-RUSAFI (1179)

The translucent water
In the rapidly running
River, looks as pearls
On a necklace.

At noon, in shadows
Of big trees, it takes
The colour of rust, and
Is a liquid mirror

Then it changes tunic
Blue again, as a warrior
Resting in the shadow
Of his banner
