Cairo Ostracon 25218 love poem 1

 

Cairo Ostracon 25218 love poem 1

As I extend these arms,
hers spread wide wings about me -

      like a soul in paradise,
      like taking her hand in the blossoming reeds,
      stepping out into the brimming pools -

yet for all these perfumes about this heart
to me you are both balm and flower's fragrance.
