Poem - Karawan

 

CARAVAN

It has been a while since the caravan pulled away for its destination,

Yet we are still sleeping in the oasis.

Did we not hear the departure gong?

Have we forgotten our accomplishments of yore?

The Greek philosophers are indebted to us;

We gave their lost pages life anew.

We have done monumental service to humanity.

So let’s open our eyes, and run and catch up with the caravan;

Otherwise, we will be left behind, sleeping forever.
