    wonderful command of the English language - plaintive like the sound of the seagull at Emmanuel's loch

    A Syrian spinster bird flew from the War Zone and landed at the old Grandpa's Vineyard!

    [A Book of Verses underneath the Bough,
    A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread- and Thou
    Beside me singing in the Wilderness-
    Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow! ]-Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    Boss! Leave the cage door latched?
    As war planes fly in the gloomy sky.
    I'll be safe with you and let me stay here
    forever!
    You said once that you have been to Lattakia?
    I'll sing you some meaningful Arabic songs
    and you can play that broken-stringed lute,
    also I could recite you few poems
    from Khayyam's Rubaiyat!
    Definitely your Vineyard be fruitful in every vintage!


    to the poetess Suzie Suheir Gharib with gratitude!

Best Poem of Susie Gharib

The Assyrian (For M.A.)

It yearns to greet the light that shines from his eyes,
An Assyrian's, whose arms will rip the blackness that enshrouds its shrines,
Wiping the tears of its minarets with a hand-held flag,
With church-bells ringing for the pledge enthroned in his heart,
With olive trees thirsty for the words that pour from his mouth,
With songs of stone-throwers racing to fill his conscience with smiles,
For the villains of history will kneel to lick the dust beneath his strides.

This poem is dedicated for the warrior who with God's grace will deliver the Holy Land and its ...
