|Her blossoming beauty must be
In the ancient eastern cities
- In imaginary seats of the caliphates.
It is a lesson of golden government,
And her dynasty looking tresses is a caliphate in whose length
An army of nightingales
In the nocturnal terror of history,
Sitting like white flowers,
in the margin,
And her hands
- Which is a token of simplicity -
Is Leila's nocturnal shirt,
And her ears,
Like the hymen of gazelles
And her eyes,
Like a mass of sunrise.
Her blazing fingers
Has defined the alphabet of love
Her forefinger attests the gazelles.
I have received expect order from her,
To throw her blazing tresses
On dead sheets
And witness the resurrection of mankind.
