My Lilly Of The Night : Nabu's Love Poem To Layla

By Ælfstangard

Romance / Poetry

Shoshanat Layli : Shir Shel Nabu Bishvil Laylah (Aisha)

שושנת לילי
מה נעים כשאת ראשך את מניחה על ברכי
ושערך נוהר עד רגלי כנהר של גז מהדר, שחר וחם.
בצוארך אני מרגיש דפק לבך.
אני רואה את עיניך מלאות דמעות גילה.
כעלעלים של אש שפתיך לוהטים אדמים,
שושנת לילי.

Ma naim keshe et roshech at menichah al birkay

Usharech noher al ragli kenahar shel gez:

Mehuddar, shachar vacham

Betsavvarech ani margish dofek lebbech

Ani roeh et aynaich meleot dimaot gillah.

Kealalayyim shel esh sefatayich lohtim adomim,

Shoshanat Layli

- Nabu

Translation:

My Lilly Of The Night : Nabu's Poem For Aisha (Layla)

How wonderful it is when you trust your head upon my lap

And your hair flows to my feet like a river of rich wool:

Black and warm.

I feel your heart beat in your throat,

I see your eyes fill with tears of joy,

Your lips burn red like petals of fire

-My Lilly of the Night.

- Nabu

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

minallie: One word, brilliant

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change.

izzymerchant: This book is truly special. The plot, the characters and the way the story flows is so engrossing and magical that I found it virtually impossible to put down.

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
