Famous quotes by seventh century:

    When my lover came to bed,
    the knot came untied
    all by itself.
    My dress,
    held up by the strings of a loosened belt,
    barely stayed on my hips.
    Friend,
    that’s as much as I know now.
    When he touched my body,
    I couldn’t at all remember
    who he was,
    who I was,
    or how It was.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Hearing the low sound
    of a cloud scattering rain
    at midnight
    and thinking for an eternity
    on his absent young wife,
    a traveller heaved a sigh
    and with a flood of tears
    howled the whole night long.
    Now, villagers won’t let him stay
    in their place anymore.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Expecting me to grovel,
    she carefully covers both feet
    with the hem of her skirt.
    She pretends to hide
    a coming smile
    and won’t look straight at me.
    When I talk to her,
    she chats with her friend
    in cross tones.
    Even this slim girl’s rising anger
    delights me,
    let alone her deep love.
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    Grovelling,
    intimate words,
    heart-stealing flattery,
    a tight embrace
    of my thinner-than-thin body,
    violent kisses all over—
    obviously,
    getting angry is worth the risk,
    but even still,
    I’m not interested.
    My lover
    is dear to my heart,
    so how could I be like that
    on purpose?
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    With its frame of shaking curls all in disarray,
    earrings swinging,
    make-up smudged by beads of sweat,
    eyes languid at the end of lovemaking,
    may the face of the slim girl
    who’s riding on top of you
    protect you long.
    What’s the use
    of Vi.s».n»u, iva, Skanda,
    and all those other gods?
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
