Upon The Verse Gate - Poem by basim al aoda

Upon the Gate of the Verse
By: Ahmad Mattar
Translation: Basim-Alaoda

When I stopped upon the verse gate,
The guards inspected my dreams,
Thy ordrered me:
To take off my hed!
And spill sensation remainders,
Then call me to writee verse -
For the people,
Then I take off my sandals at the door,
And I say:
O, guards, I take off themore peril,
This sandal treads,
This hed is trodden.
