The Damascene Collar of the Dove

마흐무드 다르위시​(Mahmoud Darwish)​ Poet



In Damascus,

the doves fly

behind the silk fence

two . . .

by two . . .



In Damascus:

I see all of my language

written with a woman’s needle 

on a grain of wheat,

refined by the partridge of the Mesopotamian rivers



In Damascus:

the names of the Arabian horses have been embroidered,

since Jahili times

and through judgment day,

or after,

. . . with gold threads



In Damascus:

the sky walks

barefoot on the old roads,


So what’s the poet’s use 

of revelation

and meter

and rhyme?



In Damascus:

the stranger sleeps

on his shadow standing

like a minaret in eternity’s bed

not longing for a land

or anyone . . .



In Damascus:

the present tense continues

its Umayyad chores:

we walk to our tomorrow certain

of the sun in our yesterday.

Eternity and we

inhabit this place!



In Damascus:

the dialogue goes on

between the violin and the oud

about the question of existence

and about the endings:

whenever a woman kills a passing lover

she attains the Lotus Tree of Heaven!



In Damascus:

Youssef tears up, 

with the flute,

his ribs

Not for a reason,

other than that 

his heart wasn’t with him



In Damascus:

speech returns to its origin,


poetry isn’t poetry

and prose isn’t prose

And you say: I won’t leave you

so take me to you

and take me with you!



In Damascus:

a gazelle sleeps

besides a woman

in a bed of dew

then the woman takes off her dress

and covers Barada with it!



In Damascus:

a bird picks

at what is left of wheat

in my palm

and leaves for me a single grain

to show me my tomorrow




In Damascus:

The jasmine dallies with me:

Don’t go far

and follow my tracks

Then the garden becomes jealous:

Don’t come near

the blood of night in my moon



In Damascus:

I keep my lighthearted dream company

and laughing on the almond blossom:

Be realistic

that I may blossom again

around her name’s water

And be realistic

that I may pass in her dream!



In Damascus:

I introduce myself

to itself:

Right here, beneath two almond eyes

we fly together as twins

and postpone our mutual past



In Damascus:

speech softens

and I hear the sound of blood

in the marble veins:

Snatch me away from my son

(she, the prisoner, says to me) 

or petrify with me!



In Damascus:

I count my ribs

and return my heart to its trot

Perhaps the one who granted me entry

to her shadow

has killed me,

and I didn’t notice . . .



In Damascus:

the stranger gives her howdah back

to the caravan:

I won’t return to my tent

I won’t hang my guitar,

after this evening,

on the family’s fig tree . . .



In Damascus:

poems become diaphanous

They’re neither sensual

nor intellectual

they are what echo says

to echo . . .



In Damascus:

the cloud dries up by afternoon,

then digs a well

for the summer of lovers in the Qysoon valley,

and the flute completes its habit

of longing to what is present in it, 

then cries in vain



In Damascus:

I write in a woman’s journal:

All what’s in you

of narcissus

desires you

and no fence, around you, protects you

from your night’s excess allure



In Damascus:

I see how the Damascus night diminishes

slowly, slowly

And how our goddesses increase

by one!



In Damascus:

the traveler sings to himself:

I return from Syria

neither alive

nor dead

but as clouds

that ease the butterfly’s burden

from my fugitive soul





“The Collar of the Dove” is a famous manuscript on beauty and the art of love, written in the 11th century by Ibn Hazm, a renowned Andalusian Muslim scholar.


Barada is a small river that runs through Damascus, and Qysoon valley is one of the city’s suburbs.


Oud is a stringed instrument resembling the lute.


The Lotus Tree of Heaven, Sidrat al-Montaha (the highest degree of attainment) is a fantastic tree that arises form the Seventh Heaven and reaches God’s throne.


Youssef: son of Jacob.​
