LOVERS OF THE SEA ‎

LOVERS OF THE SEA 
Abdul-Sada Al- Basri 
Translated by Hamid Alshammari 

Lovers of the sea 
Wrestle the waves with their wooden arms
And shake hands with the wind by a transparent sail
It folds 
And spreads it as a wash on the ropes of the days
The waves take them away
Like the dreams of inexperienced girls.
And bring them back to islands inhabited with 
The remains of hope and tales 

lovers of the sea 
Their wishes are very simple
They do not exceed the waves riding and sailing against the current
Their songs are the sea hymns,
Hello, Holloia , Holloia
Their catch is love and visions
And their dreams are the beaches of warmth and joy 

How many times did the sea exceed the limits in deceiving them, 
How many times did the wind break its covenant with them 
And how many times did they sit on the beach
Waiting for a new dream ? 

The lovers
Will remain obdurate in their love 
For this mysterious giant, the sea
