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


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

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.
