Nizar Qabbani: Take off your Clothes (From Arabic)

Take Off Your Clothes
By Nizar Qabbani
Translated by A.Z. Foreman
Click here to hear me recite the Arabic

Take off your clothes.
It has been ages since a miracle
Touched the earth. Take off your clothes
For I am mute, but your body knows
Every tongue. Take off your clothes.

The Original:

نزار قباني

تعري فمنذ زمان طويل
على الأرض لم تسقط المعجزات
تعري .. تعري
أنا أخرس
وجسمك يعرف كل اللغات
