I Take the Aegis

My love!
Zeus is my friend.
I take his aegis,
mighty as a Himalayan mountain,
the shield of the gods
I take it.
It is heavy as lead,
the cosmic shape,
circles and gold mosaics,
Gorgon face, snake hair.
Come with me
my love!
There’s nothing to fret
the deuces.
For you my love
I take it
to protect you and me.

_____Muhammad Shahab.
