In The Summer by Nizar Qabbani

Guest poet at ChickenScratches today.~~GHC

In The Summer

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.

~~by Nizar Qabbani
Translated by B. Frangieh And C. Brown
