Passage

I am dotted silver threads dropped from heaven

By the Gods. Nature then takes me, to adorn

Her fields and valleys.

I am beautiful pearls, plucked from the

Crown of Ishtar by the daughter of Dawn

To embellish the gardens.

When I cry the hills laugh;

When I humble myself the flower rejoice;

When I bow, all things are elated.

The field and the cloud are lovers

And between them I am a messenger or mercy.

I quench the third of one;

I cure the ailment of the other.

The voice of thunder declares my arrival;

The rainbow announces my departure.

I am like earthly life, which begins at

The feet of the mad elements and ends

Under the upraised wings of death.

I emerge from the heard of the sea

Soar with the breeze. When I see a field in

Need, I descend and embrance the flowers and

The trees in a million little ways.

I touch gently at the windows with my

Soft fingers, and my announcement is a

Welcome song. All can hear, but only

The sensitive can understand.

The heat in the air gives birth to me,

But in turn I kill it,

As woman overcomes man with

The strength she takes from him.

I am the sigh of the sea;

The laughter of the field;

The tears of heaven.

So with love

Sighs from the deep sea of affection;

Laughter from the colorful field of the spirit;

Tears from the endless heaven of memories.

– Khalil Gibran

Passage

A chieftain, to the Highlands bound, Cries,

“Boatman, do not tarry!

And I’ll give thee a silver pound

To row us o’er the ferry! “–

“Now, who be ye, would cross Lochgyle,

This dark and stormy weather? “

“O, I’m the chief of Ulva’s isle,

And this, Lord Ullin’s daughter.

“And fast before her father’s men

Three days we’ve fled together,

For should he find us in the glen,

My blood would stain the heather.

“His horsemen hard behindus ride

Should they our steps discover,

Then, who will cheer my bonny bride

When they have slain her lover? “–

“And by my word! the bonny bride

In danger shall not tarry;

So, though the waves are raging white,

I’ll row you o’er the ferry. “–

By this the storm grew loud apace,

The water-wraith was shrieking;

And in the scowl of heaven each face

Grew dark as they were speaking.

But still as wilder blew the wind,

And as the night grew drearer,

Adown the glen rode armed men,

Their trampling sounded nearer.

– Thomas Campbell
