Lamii (Mohammed Ben Osman Ben Ali Nakkash)

Poems from Oriental Languages: Trophy Taken from Love

(Turkish—Sixteenth Century)

Translation in Dublin University Magazine

WOE is me! Since first I tasted

That rich cup of Love delicious

Sweetened by Gulnare,

I am grown so lean and wasted

She can draw me as she wishes

By a single hair.
