From her book: The Yelling of Pride
By: Nuha Zurub Kawar

Translated by: Adib S. Kawar



I am the daughter of the Galilee

The daughter of Christs Nazareth

The daughter of the towering Galilee over the high hills

In my ribs

The eastern stars meeting grandfathers dreams

From here I kiss them all

To make the impossible, they rose

The land they ruled and the sea they waded

Then like eagles they died

I am the daughter of the Galilee

Different from all the worlds women I look

From childhood I feel I am

The pride glory and grandeur

Do you love??? I was asked

I replied

How men without a homeland would women they love???

I am a woman that myself I dont fault..

And if once the heart betrays me

I fight!

Peace on you I say

Peace to the towering hills

Peace for the homelands mothers

and for the youngsters before dawn

*** * ***

An Arab I am

Pure is my blood proud is my soul

From the high mountains, the woman I am

A fountain at the mountains foot I am

A Nazarene I am..

My mother my sister..

My daughter and my son too

My bloods path is frankincense echo

Trills and shrills I am

A peoples song

Howling in a racist grip


******

An Arab I am

It hurts me

To vagabond my people

Killing my eagles

Demolishing my bridges

by dumb hands

*** * ***

An Arab I am

A Nazarene I am

A descendent of a proud and disdainful people

Aping the sky

With a clear clean face

My peoples history

a record of pride it is

my land my home

my peoples stumps

like a beacon

shall always remain

*** * ***



An Arab I am

And admonition I have

O mother I learned

The love of my lands soil

Arabs I admonished

Admonition passes

The killing of the young

The war prisoners fetters

With admonition I am bore

*** * ***

An Arab I am

Pure are my roots proud are my branches

My head I shall rise up to the sky

My bier I shall make of prides roses

My fragrance I shall spray all around

Everywhere to is dear

So as my scent near me it remains

To my people it reminds that pride I am

And my roots the sky they reach

That here I am the plants glory and loftiness

I live I die and light remains
