Kanzona první

Канцона

Vykřikl hromovým hlasem

v ospalou modrou tmu

rudý, pematý oheň

na dvoře u domu.

Vítr volný a milý

přiletěl s měsíce,

šlehá, až to bolí,

tišinu na líce.

Na skále jitřenka svěží

v šatě červeném

lačné obláčky krmí

z jantaru ječmenem.

V tu chvíli na svět jsem přišel,

umru zas s úsvitem.
Proto jsem cestu k dobru

nenašel v životě svém.

Proto smělými rety

tu jednu líbám tak rád,

tu, s kterou nemusím nikdy

do výšin odlétat.

Suez Canal

Flights of days and nights / Have been conjured before my gaze / But I’ve known none as bright / As those above the Suez / / Where ships sail not on seas / But in lines on land-locked ponds / Like a caravan of camels / Filing across the horizon. / / How many many birds, /...

Ezbekiah

How strange - a decade ago precisely I / Was there, looking at Ezbekiah. / The great Cairo garden, as a full moon / Solemnly blessed the gathering night. / / I was worn down because of a woman, / And neither the salty fresh wind from the sea, / Nor the commotion of the exotic bazaar /...

The Word

In those days, over the new world, when / God turned His face,** then / The word stopped the sun,*** / The word brought down a town.**** / / The eagle stretched not his wing, / The stars in fear stung at the moon, / When, like a rose colored flame, / Through the heights, the word sw...
