Treasure Island

إسماعيل بن القاسم أبو العتاهية

ألا إنّما الدّنيا علَيكَ حِصارُ

ألا إنّما الدّنيا علَيكَ حِصارُ ...................... يَنالُكَ فيها ذِلّة ٌ وصَغارُ
ومَالكَ فِي الدُّنيا مِنَ الكَدِّ راحَة ٌ .............. ولاَ لكَ فِيهَا إنْ عَقَلْتَ قرارُ
وما عَيشُها إلاّ لَيالٍ قَلائِلٌ، ....................... سراعٌ وأيَّامٌ تَمُرُّ قِصَارُ
وما زِلْتَ مَزْمُوماً تُقادُ إلى البِلى ،............ يَسُوقُكَ لَيلٌ، مرّة ً، ونَهارُ
وعارية ٌ ما فِي يَدَيْكَ وإنَّمَا ...................... يُعارُ لرَدٍّ ما طَلَبْتَ يُعارُ

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
