O Fātimah!

ققال امرؤ القيس

20140724-185304-67984313.jpgO Fatimah! Slow all that
Proud reasoning!
And if you have so determined,
Then cut away so, beautifully,

You have become bolder,
That your love be my killer,
And, indeed, that you, whatever you
Command the heart it does!

And if it’s so that,
From me, anything, harmed you,
Then draw from my dress
Your dress, so you separate—

And your eyes have not
Teared but only for you to play,
With your two arrows,
At the parts of a slain heart!
