The Wagon of Love
© Written by Sihem Cherif She said: "Be my Daniel, taken in a fury
Enchanted by the colors of my dress
Tell me all about the love story
Straightening the rope from its backwardness"
Be My Danielle,
I will be your 'Anna', yielding to the vows of togetherness
He said: "Do be my Anna, leaving her cozy home,
the child's smile and all the glory of her Dome
I will be your Vronsky
No shame in tears when love surges."
She said: "Be my George abducting his throne
Making of me a queen of his heart
yearning to sip coffee with me
in a mere flat balcony
I will be your 'Wallis'
and put up with all the agony...
Enchanting those fragrant loves stories
in the book of life
Let's go to the sea, to look for
'the old man and his whale'
we shall thaw in the din of the churches
and ask 'for whom the bell tolls'?
The brimmed love king became
'the English patient'
saying 'farewell to arms' and armas
and 'the sun also rises' to say
goodbye to the pandemic
cherish the 'love in the time of cholera.' Notations:
