The Morning Smiles but Does Not See Me
Translated By Adil Saleh
I have set the mountains free;
The flower, at its utmost distraction,
Is ransoming the far-off stars.
The sun puts my neck on,
And a fire illuminates me.
The morning smiles but does not see me;
It stumbles on
And weeps for a day whose legacy it has sold.
Love has changed me.
I am no longer Venus
I am no longer any of the planets.
I am a woman
That roams the wilderness in rusty slippers of dreams
