DARJEELING
***

(Where I had been dazed by the beauty of nature at the Himalayas)

Poem By: Abdelmoneim Khalifa Khogaly
(Translated from Arabic By: Dr. Ahmed Ibrahim Yagi

******
Spring of comeliness indeed your beauty had moved me that of wording I was listless......
By you is the pride of life, O pageantry by you year after year is resplendence of existence.....
O shrine of beauty to you we came chaste in consecration dress....

O mountains as if in pride imposingly lofty like Buddha ...like those steadfast in stance...
Verdant, blooming and flourishing .. delight to the eye wherever falls its glance......

Ye this waterfall is streaming silver. Whence did you come, since when and till when your existence....
Like youth of life in rushing steps ..being greeted O youth in bliss .....
Darjeeling .. I fell in love, so can I love then love infuse??.... .

O pearl glittering at morning onset, and stay the evening in glitter, and in continuance ......
You .. O paradise, thirsty as we are, we have imbibed and still in sickness..........

And we suckled the zest of beauty for inebriety..do I seem for weaning to have yet tolerance??...
O beauty for its like evolved afflatus, art and poetry ..and singing fanned over distance
...

Dear Ustaza Asma..
Tahiyaty and thanks for your appreciation

Here is the Arabic text of the poem:
*********


دارجيلنج

شعر: عبد المنعم خليفة خوجلي


***


مــنبع الحسـن إن حسـنــك أشــجــانــي فــمــا اســتطــعت كـلامـا


بـك فــخــر الحيــاة يــا مـهـرجــانـاً بك زهــو الوجود عاما فعاما


أنت يــا معبد الــجــمــال أتـيـنــاك حــجـيـجـاً مطهرين حرامـا


يـا جــبـالاً كــالكبــريـاء شــمــوخاً مثل بوذا كالراســخــات مقاما


واخـــضـراراً ونـضــرة وازدهــاراً بــهـجة العين أين ما تترامى


أيــهــذا الشــلال ذوب لــجــينٍ أنــت مـــن أيــن مـذ متــى وإلام؟


كشـــبــاب الحــيــاة منــدفع الخـــطــو حــييت يـا شبابا تسامى


دارجــيلــنج أنــــي عشــقت فهل لي أن أبث الغرام ثم الغرامـا


أنت يــــا درة تلألأ إصـــبـــاحـــاً وتــمســـي لألاءةً ودوامـــــا


أنت يا جــنة ونــحن ظمـــاءً قد نــهلـــا ولا نــزال ســـقامـــــا


ورضعنا من نشوة الحسن سكراً هل تراني أطيق بعد فطـــاما


يا جمالاً لمثله خلق الوحي والفن والشعر .. والغناء ترامـــى

Greetings Brother Abdelmoneim

It is the far-fetched beauty in both languages. Though. the English version is rich in vocabulary, I think the Arabic version is more eloquent with the sensational feelings of the well kept rhythm. This master piece reminds me of Mohamed Ahmed Mahjoub poem when he described The Alps mountains. The magic of mother nature was captivated by both of you and it is overwhelmingly fascinating. Thank you brother and please keep us posted with these wonderful thoughts.

Dear Dr. Ibrahim

Greetings and best wishes.

Very much gratified with your positive comment and critical appreciation for Darjeeling poem. Your highlighting for the sensational feeling and the rhythm running through the verses of the poem made me feel proud and much encouraged.
Thanks also for detecting the relevant comparison between the description of the beauty of nature on the Alps by Almahgoub, and on the Himalayas by me in this poem


Hope to see you again in Muscat

Abdelmoneim Khalifa
