シティタイムズ

by Vihang A. Naik Maki Starfield

「世界は震える/汚染された惑星/助けを求めて/女神ガンガーは叫ぶ」 ヴィハンの詩集『シティタイムズ』からの一節である。イタリア語とスペイン語にも訳されているこの詩集は、人間とは何か、生きるということは何か、を社会的背景や歴史的伝統の違う私たちに問いかけています。人生は創るものであり、新しい自分を創っていく、それが人生だよ、と彼の言葉は教えています。まず、自分を愛すること、大切にすることが大事だと言います。自分を見つめ、人生を考えた時、しみじみと身にしみる詩です。 「ハートを開いて/命が入ってくる/本当に生きている」

أسواق الذهب

by أحمد شوقى

قلْ لا أعرِف الرِّقّ، وتقيَّد بالواجب وتقيَّد بالحقّ؛ الحرية وما هِيَه؟ "الحُمَيراءُ"  الغالية، فِتنةُ القرون الخالية، وطَلِبةُ النفوسِ العالية؛ غِذاءُ الطّبائع، ومادّةُ الشرائع، وأُمُّ الوسائل والذَّرائع؛ بنتُ العلم إذا عمّ، والخلق إذا تمّ، وربيبة الصبر الجميل والعمل الجمّ؛ الجهلُ يئدُها، والصغائرُ تُفسدُها، والفُرْقةُ تُبعدُها؛ تكبيرةُ الوجود، في أُذُن المولود؛ وتحية الدُّنيا له إذا وصل، وصيْحة الحياة به إذا نَصَل؛ هاتِفٌ منَ السماءِ يقولُ له: يا ابنَ آدم؛ حَسْبُكَ من الأسماءِ عبدُ الله وسيّدُ العالَم، وهي القابلة التي تستقبله، ثم تسرُّهُ وتُسَرْبلُه، وهي المهدُ والتميمَة، والمُرضعُ الكريمة، المنجبة كـ "حليمة". ألبانُها حياة، وأحضانُها جنَّات. وأنفاسُها طيِّبات. العزيزُ من وُلدَ بين سَحْرِها ونَحْرها، وتعلق بصدرِها، ولعِبَ على كَتِفها وحِجرها، وترعرعَ بين خِدرها وسِترها.. ضجيعةُ موسى في التابوت، وَجاوَرَتْه في دار الطاغوت، والعصا التي توكأ عليها، والنَّارُ التي عشَا إليها، جبلّةُ المَسيح، السِّيدِ السَّميح، وإنجيلُه، الذي حاربُه جيلُه، وسَبيلُه، الذي جانَبَهُ قَبيلُه، طِينةُ محمدٍ عن نفسِه، عن قومِه، عن أمسِه، عن يومه، أنسابٌ عالية، وأحسابٌ زاكية، وملوكٌ بادية، لم يَدنهم طاغية، وهي رُوحُ بيانِه، ومُنحدَر السُّوَر على لسانِه، الحرِّية، عقدُ الملك، وعهدُ المَلْك، وسًكان الفُلْك، يدُ القلم، على الأمم، ومِنحة الفكر، ونفحة الشعر وقصيدة الدهر، لا يُستَعْظَمُ فيها قرْبان، ولو كان الخليفة عثمان بن عفان، جنينٌ يحمَلُ به في أيام المحْنَة، وتحتَ أفياء الفتنة، وحينَ البغي سيرة السَّامَّة ، والعدوان وتيرة العامَّة، وعندَما تناهى غفلة السواد، وتفاقم عَبث القوَّاد، وبين الدَّم المطلول، والسيف المسلول، والنظم المحلول، وكذلك كان الرُّسلُ يولدون عندَ عموم الجهالة، ويُبعثون حين طمُوم الضلالة؛ فإذا كَملَتْ مدَّتُه. وطلَعتْ غُرَّتهُ، وسطعَتْ أُسِرَّتُه، وصحَّتْ في المهد إمرتُه، بدّلت الحالَ غيرَ الحال، وجاءَ رجالٌ بعدَ الرِّجَال؛ دينٌ ينفسحُ للصادقِ والمنافق، وسوقٌ يتَّسع للكاسِد والنَّافق، مولودٌ حمْلُهُ قرُون، ووضعُهُ سِنُون، وحَداثتُه أشغالٌ وشئون، وأهوالٌ وشجون، فرحِمَ الله كلَّ من وطَّأ ومهَّد، وهيَّأ وتعهَّد، ثم استشهدَ قبلَ أن يشهَد. إذا أحرزت الأُممُ الحرِّيَّة أتت السيادةُ من نفسِها، وسعت الإمارةُ على رأسِها، وبُنِيَت الحضارةُ من أُسِّها؛ فهي الآمرُ الوازع، القليلُ المُنازِع، النبيلُ المشاربِ والمَنَازع؛ الذي لا يتخذ شِيعة، ولا صنيعة، ولا يَزْدهي بخديعة؛ خازنٌ ساهر، وحاسبٌ ماهر؛ دانقُ الجماعة بذمةٍ منهُ وأمان، ودِرْهَمُهم في حِرْزهِ دِرْهَمَان. "فيا ليلى" ماذا مِن أترَاب، وارَيْتِ التراب؟ وأخدان، أسلمتِ للديدان؟ عُمَّالٌ للحق عُمَّار، كانوا الشُّموسَ والأقمار، فأصبحوا على أفواه الرُّكَّاب والسُّمار؛ وأين قيسُك المعولِ؟ ومجنونُك الأوَّل؟ حائطُ الحقُّ الأطوَل، وفارسُ الحقيقةِ الأجوَل؛ أين مصطفى؟ زينُ الشباب، ورَيْحان الأحباب. وأوَّلُ من دَفع الباب، وأبرزَ النَّاب، وزأرَ دون الغاب؟...  

أميرة الأندلس

by أحمد شوقى

            "الملك نشوان ومعه مضحكه مقلاص يدنو من زورق على الوادي الكبير فيثب فيه ويقول" الملك       :         انظر يا مقلاص إلى هذا الزورق ما ألطفه، صدق القول: كل صغير لطيف. مقلاص    :         إلا وظيفتي في قصرك فإنها لا لطيفة ولا شريفة، وإن هذا الزورق قد ينقلب فيأخذ شكل النعش، ولن يكون النعشُ لطيفًا أبدًا. الملك       :         هبه انقلب يا مقلاص فصار نعشًا، أليس النعشُ مركبَ كل حي وإن طالتْ سلامته! مقلاص    :         أما أنا فيعفيني الملك. الملك       :         لا يا مقلاص لا أعفيك، ولا أحسبك تدعني أسير في لجة النهر وحدي وأنا كما تراني نشوان. مقلاص    :         وإن كان ولابد أيها الملك فإني أقترح.. الملك       :         وما تقترح؟ مقلاص    :         أن أكون أنا المجدِّفَ وحدي. الملك       :         ولماذا؟ مقلاص    :         الأمر بيِّن! التيار مجنون، والسكر مجنون، وأنت سلطان وكل سلطان مجنون. وهذا الزورق خشبة لا عقل لها فهو أيضًا مجنون؛ وإني أربأ بحياتي أيها الملك أن أجمع عليها مجانين أربعة. الملك       :         (مستضحكًا) لا يكون إلا ما اقترحتَ يا مقلاص، تعال اركب وجدف وحدك واترك لي أنا الدفة. مقلاص    :         أما هذا فنعم. وإني أرجو أن تكون دفة هذا المركب الصغير أحسن مصيرًا في يديك من دفة المملكة. الملك       :         (مستضحكًا) تعال ثب؛ هات يدك. (مقلاص ينزل إلى الزورق ويأخذ المجدافين). الملك       :         انظر يا مقلاص وراءك، إني أرى قاربًا يندفع نحونا مسرعًا كأنه حوت مطارد مذعور. مقلاص    :         هو ذا قد دنا منا يا مولاي، فأحسن مسك الدفة واجتنب الصدمة، وأنا أزوده عنا بمجدافي هذا وأضربه ضربة تقذف به إلى الشاطئ الآخر من النهر. الملك       :         إياك أن تفعل بل ائسره، فلابد لنا أن نؤدب هذا الشاب المغرور، فإني أرى الملاح فتى كريم الهيئة فهو لاشك من أبناء أعيان أشبيلية. (يصطدم الزورقان ويظهر مقلاص ارتباكًا وجبنًا، فيقبض الملك على الزورق المهاجم بيد قوية ويقول لمقلاص) الملك       :         اقذف الآن به إن استطعت إلى الشاطئ الآخر من النهر (ثم يلتفت إلى الشاب الملاح ويقول) مكانك أيها الغلام الوقاح، ما هذه الجرأة على التيار وعلى شبابك هذا الغض النضير! وما غرك بالملك حتى قربت عودك من عوده تريد أن تأخذ عليه الطريق. الملاح     :         مولاي إن الرعية يهفون، وإن الملوك يعفون، وزورقي إنما اندفع بقوة التيار القاهر فوافق مرور مركبك المحروس، فكان ما كان مما أعتذر للملك منه. الملك       :         (بصوت منخفض) ويح أُذني ماذا تسمع؟ هذا الصوت أعرفه؟ (ثم يلتفت إلى الملاح قائلاً): قد عرفت أيها الفتى من نحن، فعرفنا بنفسك. (يرفع الملاح قناعه) الملك       :         (صائحًا) بثينة! الأميرة     :         (الملاح) أجل أيها الملك ابنتك وأمتك بثينة. الملك       :         عجبًا! أأنتِ هنا بين العبب والتيار، وعلى هذا العود الذي يشفق أبوك من ركوبه، وأبوك من تعلمين أشجع العرب قلبًا؟ الأميرة     :         ولم لا تكون ابنة الملك شجاعة القلب مثله! إن الأسد لا يلد إلا اللباة. الملك       :         (يهدأ غضبه) ومن أين مجيئكِ الساعة يا بثينة؟

100 Poems from the Japanese

by Kenneth Rexroth

It is remarkable that any Westerner--even so fine a poet as Kenneth Rexroth--could have captured in translation so much of the subtle essence of classic Japanese poetry: the depth of controlled passion, the austere elegance of style, the compressed richness of imagery. The poems are drawn chiefly from the traditional Manyoshu, Kokinshu and Hyakunin Isshu collections, but there are also examplaes of haiku and other later forms. The sound of the Japanese texts i reproduced in Romaji script and the names of the poets in the calligraphy of Ukai Uchiyama. The translator's introduction gives us basic background on the history and nature of Japanese poetry, which is supplemented by notes on the individual poets and an extensive bibliography.

101 Poems That Could Save Your Life

by Daisy Goodwin

The poems listed include classics by Emily Dickinson, Lord Byron, Ogden Nash, and Lucretius, to name just a few, along with newer works by such current practitioners as Seamus Heaney and Wendy Cope.

101 Poems to Get You Through the Day (and Night)

by Daisy Goodwin

This is an anthology designed to help you get through the stresses of modern life. For rapid and effective relief around the clock, 24-7, without side effects, try a poem -- whatever the time of the day (or night), you can be sure that some poet, past or present, has been there too. To help you find the right poem at the right time, the organization of the book is like that of a book of hours. Starting with Getting Up, it then moves on to those other morning traumas: Stepping on the Scale and Looking into the Mirror. As the day moves on there are sections to cover everything, from Office Politics to Off to School. And if by five p.m. your head is throbbing, dig into the poems in the Take 5 section and let the world recede. By the end of the day you may want to look for inspiration among the poems in Going Home, but if you are intent on veering from the straight and narrow, then turn to the Behaving Badly poems and you'll find you're in good company. Anyone who feels vaguely guilty about settling down in front of the TV instead of taking cafÉ society by storm should turn to the poems in the Not Tonight section.

The 13th Sunday after Pentecost: Poems (Voices of the South)

by Joseph Bathanti

In The 13th Sunday after Pentecost, Joseph Bathanti offers poems that delve deep into a life reimagined through a mythologized past. Moving from his childhood to the present, weaving through the Italian immigrant streets of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to his parochial school, from the ballpark to church and home again, these contemplative poems present a situation unique to the poet but familiar to us all. As Bathanti recalls the joys, struggles, and confusion of his formative years in the late fifties and into the sixties, he gains a deeper understanding of the often surreal, always paradoxical world around him. He explores the perceived injustices of childhood, observes the mysteries of religious rituals, and examines the complex emotions families experience as children grow up and parents grow old. These poems divulge an eventful life, compelling us to reflect on our own as we confront a world of wonder and uncertainty. Across the strike zone swoops a dove, maybe an angel. You’re in Pittsburgh, March; it’s snowing. All week you’ve seen angels; everyone’s tired, proclaiming even horrid things angels, intimating miracles. Johnson’s pitch obliterates the bird— a hail of feathers and dander, as if inside a tiny bomb detonated. Like a cartoon. Thoroughly unbelievable. Around you, people are dying. But you ignore it. You laugh at the massacred dove. It’s not funny, but you laugh. You could cry, rip your hair out, your clothes off, crash through the seventhfloor window into the slushy black streets of the city. It’s funny because it’s not. —from “Angels”
