Psalm Three

Psalm Three

On the day when my words
Were earth…
I was a friend to stalks of wheat.

On the day when my words
Were wrath
I was a friend to chains.

On the day when my words
Were stones
I was a friend to streams.

On the day when my words
Were a rebellion
I was a friend to earthquakes.

On the day when my words
Were bitter apples
I was a friend to the optimist.

But when my words became
Honey…
Flies covered
My lips!…



Poem Psalm Three - Mahmoud Darwish
