The Golden Wine Cups of the Night

 Next Poem          

In henna I have dyed my hands,
When will he come ?
I die, while he roams distant lands,
My heart is numb!

O, where is now the day's delight ?
I've waited long.
The golden wine cups of the night
To him belong !

The ritual of love is sweet,
Could I adorn
My love with jewels, perfume his feet,
Be no more torn,

Anoint him with my fragrant kiss,
Love, for your sake,
The lotus of my heart in bliss
Would block the lake !
