    It was the Egyptian Abdulhaleem Hafiz the most popular singer in the Arab countries that time who popularized Nizar lyrics

Language

When a man is in love
how can he use old words?
Should a woman
desiring her lover
lie down with
grammarians and linguists?

I said nothing
to the woman I loved
but gathered
love's adjectives into a suitcase
and fled from all languages.
