أصابك عشق – أبد الرحمان محمد ومهاب عمر


أَصابَكَ عَشْقٌ أَمْ رُميتَ بأَسْهُمٍ
have you been struck with love or arrow of a bow?

فَما هٰذِهِ إلّا  سَجِيَّةُ مُغْرَمِ
for what is it but the pain of deep-pained lover

أَلا فَاسقني كاساتٍ وغَنِّ لي
quench my thirst with wine and sing to me

بِذِكْرِ سُليمى والكمانِ ونَغْمِ
with the poetry of Sulayma and the sound of its violin

أَيّا داعَيًا بِذِكْرِ العامِريةِ أَنَّني
oh you the caller of Al-Amiriya’s memory, that I
أَغارُ عَلَيْها مِن فَمِّ المُتَكَلِّمِ
it makes me jealous, anyone talking about her

أَغارُ عَلَيْها من ثِيابِها
it makes me jealous, her clothes

إذا لَبِسَتْها فَوْقَ جِسْمٍ مُنَعّمٍ
when she dresses them upon her smooth body

أَغَارُ عَلَيْها مِن أَبِيها وأُمِّها
I’m jealous of her father and mother

إذا حَدَثاها بِالكَلامِ المُغَمْغَمِ
when they speak to her words to me unknown

وأَحْسُدُ كاسَاتٍ تُقَبِلْنَ ثَغْرَها
and I envy glasses kissing her lips

إذا وَضَعَتْها مَوْضَعِ اللثمِ في الفَمِّ
when she lets it touch upon her feminine mouth
