Concerto of the Enchanting Night

Concerto of the Enchanting Night Arabic Poem by: Fadhil Aziz Farman * Translated Into English by: Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk) ========================= You suggest the songs And leave me deep In the splendor of the rhythm and melody. Drag my day out of the dream to wakefulness I have not known But the philosophy of dreams In all my days. You suggest the songs And leave me floating in a wave of fragrance Showered down By Lynol Ritchie With his love songs Or by Yanni with his tunes. And dance Do the tango Do the waltz Do the ballet or the jerk dance Dance as you please Or spin around the Earth-pole, O symbol of amazing taste, Rouser of lightning in the sky, And crown of all beauties. Here I am intoxicated By the melody pulsating in your figure And by the bashful roses On your cheeks, O sweet wine in my chalice and my vats. You suggest the songs And at the end of the round Put your head on my chest, O child of my poems, And listen to my heart singing them With the virgin tears of joy Flowing down the violin’s cheek. You suggest the songs You suggest the melody And hint the sweet words They’ll come to you Then hold me to your chest like a child. I will need your ear To whisper to you All that baffles my heart And my tongue You suggest the songs And strew them Such as roses On the desert of my life. What remains for us Of all our years, But joy Strewn like roses And like dew On the seconds? ********* Translated by Em. Prof. Inaam Al-Hashimi USA * Fadhil Aziz Farman is a poet from Iraq --------------- The original poem in Arabic
