Lament


Why’s that the forest weeps?
Is it because a young tree died?
Is it that the winter storm last night
laid siege to a loving charming girl?
Or did it hear about killing of ducks
locked in mating?
does it know that tomorrow
It will be farther from itself
When the village of love
Falls from its body
after a thousand years.
/Hama Jaza
