Samuel HaNagid: “קרב”

25 09 2006

קרב דומה בראשו אל יפיפה
אשר כל איש לשחק בה יאוה
וסופו כזקנה המאוסה
אשר כל שוחרה יבכה וידוה

War is, at first, like a sweet-heart
With whom every man longs to play
At the last she is a like a repulsive old hag
Whose paramours weep and ache

– Samuel HaNagid (993-1056)
