Aḥmad Zakī Abū Shādī

Aḥmad Zakī Abū Shādī (أحمد زكي أبو شادي)

b.1892-d.1955

Twenty-five years have passed away, and still the flame of my love  leaps and flickers.

I still remain the maddened youth, with pounding heart.

Memories of love and its frenzied visions parade before me sleeping and awake.

She is part of me, so how can I forsake her? Oh welcome to imagination, by which I hold and touch.

-Aḥmad Zakī Abū Shādī
