Bless Those Wonderful Nights

Nazhun al-Garnatiya bint al-Qulai’iya
Arab Andalusian
? – c. 1100

 

Bless those wonderful nights,
And best of all,
Saturdays
If you had been there
You’d have seen us locked together
Under the chaperone’s sleepful eyes
Like the sun in the arms of the moon
Or a panting gazelle in the clasp of a lion.
