Poems of Bechara El Khoury

Youth and Beauty

Youth and Beauty, met in one,
Are thy kingdom, thine alone;
And was ever crown more fair
Than the crown which thou dost wear?
Loveliness upon a time
Lifted up a throne sublime:
"Who shall sit thereon?" asked we,
And he pointed, love, to thee.
Let thy gentle spirit now

[Hata Bildir]
