It was love for you that set me afire.

If your past is experience
make your tomorrow meaning and vision!
Let’s go to our tomorrow certain
of imagination’s candor, and of the miracle of grass.

Mahmoud Darwish, from “Counterpoint,” trans. by Fady Joudah, If I Were Another (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011)
