Purple

Purple peeks out through the ends of the rainbow
Smiling at the lavender flowers.
Their intoxicating scents -cover the flakes of amethyst –
between clods of earth.
They repel the odor-
like an amethyst crystal *-
that drive back all drunkenness,
Allow the noble robes of petals –
to flow with the melodious wind
Like a prince ** in “purple rain”.

* Amethyst is a purple crystal, a gemstone. The Greeks attributed it to protection against intoxication and therefore drank from amethyst cups to avoid intoxication (Greek: a = no, methostos = drunk)
** Purple Rain is the album by singer Prince who is regularly ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time.

 

סָגֹל

מִשּׁוּלֵי הַקֶּשֶׁת מֵצִיץ הַסָּגֹל
מְחַיֵּךְ אֶל פִּרְחֵי הַלָּבֶנְדֵּר
רֵיחָם הַמְּשַׁכֵּר עוֹטֵף פְּתִיתֵי *אַחְלָמָה
בֵּין רִגְבֵי אֲדָמָה
הֵם הוֹדְפִים אֶת הָרֵיחַ
כְּמוֹ אמטיסט* הַהוֹדֵף כָּל שֵׁכָר
מַנִּיחִים לגְלִימוֹת
אֲצִילוּת
שֶׁל עֲלֵי כּוֹתֶרֶת
לָנוּעַ עִם רוּחַ נוֹגֶנֶת
כְּמוֹ נסיך** בְּגֶשֶׁם סָגֹל

* אחלמה (אמטיסט) הינו גביש סגול ,אבן חן .היוונים ייחסו לו הגנה מפני שיכרות ולכן שתו מגביעי אחלמה על מנת להימנע משכרות (ביוונית : א =לא ,מטוסטוס= שיכור
** גשם סגול הוא אלבומו של הזמר פרינס המדורג באופן קבוע כאחד מהאלבומים הגדולים בכל הזמנים.
