Poetry: ‘Beloved Country!’ by Walter William Safar

Posted on Aug 5 2013 - 9:06pm by Walter William Safar




How far your dreams are walking

While masters whisper out for them,

I wonder while watching

The bluish shadows in awe,

Twirling around you, beloved country,

As if you were a slender young candle;


(Wise men say that shadows are fellow sufferers and travelers to our dreams)


How far your dreams are walking

While masters whisper out for them,

I wonder while the wind reaches out through the quiet fog,

The wind that softly caresses your beautiful face,

Beloved country,

The world never looked as beautiful

As it does this morning,

When my gaze met your gaze,

Beloved country,

The valleys were set ablaze in a lush

And moist green,

As if the most beautiful woman’s eyes are flaming in the dreamlit air,

I sense the scent of your wonderful body,

Like the scent of that slender fir,

Atop the highest mountain,

Allured by the moon at night.

I didn’t hear a thing… not a thing…

Apart from the unbridled and loud beating of my own heart,

And you, beloved country,

You blissfully laugh,

Inadvertently grabbing my heart.


Beloved country, intertwined with roads of dreams,

Now my dreams,

Rising from copper chains towards the golden sun,

Are mingling with the old hero’s dreams,

Who solitary buries his mute, salty tears

Into your sacred bosom,

Like the seed of a new life.


I am praising you, beloved country!

If I could choose where I shall be buried,

I would like my grave to be there.

If I had to wake up lonely in the world,

I would like to wake up there,

In the crystal night’s embrace,

In the proud wind’s embrace,

In your embrace,

Beloved country!
