The mirrors of time



The mirrors of time
By
Pauls  Assyrian

Translated

Hassan Hegazy Hassan  

***

The colorful sun curls with
Kisses are flying with the four seasons
From east to west
After putting her eggs
In the mirrors of time
To send its radiance towards
The lost time
Then the doves smile
in the space
And fly across the distant banks and lakes
Remote
To take a break and to dialogue with
The following time with
The crazy waves
Or the crazy tremor
In order to shake the tall trees
And throw its fruitful fruits
And send its sad melodies  
For those who want to breathe
The winds of freedom
In the world countries which are
  Adorned with snowy kisses
While they are painting whiteness
Above trees, houses, and hearts
So that white flowers can grow on them
Like the heart of my beloved Shamuramat
While she laughs in her golden cart
And stepping over the heads
 of the Persians, The Magi
And to achieve for the nation
 its rosy dreams
In the Assyrian triangle.
