I Said Unto You

Poem No.: 28 النص العربي: لا يوجد


I said unto you:

I listened to the seas

reading to me their verses

I listened to the bells

slumbering inside the oyster shells.

I said unto you:

I sang my songs

at Satan's wedding

and the feast of the fable.

I said unto you:

I beheld,

in the rain of history

and the glow of the distance

a fairy and a dwelling.

Because I sail in my eyes,

I said unto you, I beheld

everything

in the first step of the distance.
