I ran up the door,
Opened the stairs,
Said my pajamas,
And put on my prayers.
Turned off my bed,
Tumbled into my light,
And all because
You kissed me good-night!

In the mind every burning,
Never sick, never dead, never cold,
From itself never turning.

The river flows between us,
crocodiles on the sandbars.

my heart slicing currents, steady
as if I were walking.

Only love it is love
that gives me strenght and courage
love that fords the river.
**Anonymous Egyptian (15-10th C)
