A LOVER’S BEAUTIFUL HYMAN / Poem by Mahmoud Said Kawash

Poem by Mahmoud Said Kawash
 
 
A LOVER’S BEAUTIFUL HYMAN
 
Before now, I was there
Dwelling on the hills of my village
With my fellow men
Uphill where the earth
Held my glory, breath and splendour
 
I was in Mirun
Where lie my origins
My identity, my people
My place of prayer
Where my flock crawled
 
Before now, I was there
Hopeful and joyful
Singing gleefully
Not knowing grief
Or tears of pain
Or cries or wails
 
Before now, I was there
Ambitious and optimistic
My path was long
Embracing the echoes in the way
Embracing my very roots
With blissful yearns
There was no sound
But a lover’s beautiful hymn.
