“My Green Dinar” Poem

English below..

ديناري الأخضر

مررت ببائع الحلوى – كان ينادي يا حلوى

حلوتي ما أحلاها – ذق ولن تنساها

بيدي دينار اخضر – كنت للحلوى أنضر

خفَ الطلب حوله – كانوا عشرة بل أكثر

أعطيت البائع ديناري – قلت ياعمي عنباري

فأعطاني من العنبر – كان طري معطر

رأيت طفل ينظر – للحلوى فهي كالسكر

دنوت منه أكثر  – وأعطيته كل العنبر

كان يبكي يتحسر – ومسحت دمعه الأحمر

قال لي انا علي – ماتت امي مات ابي

هذا الشقاء اشقاني – أعيش عند جيراني

فانتبه البائع لنا – وعرف القصة فدنا

وأعطى لنا دينارا  اخضر  -هو ديناري

مررت ببائع الحلوى  – كان ينادي يا حلوى

ديناري الأخضر ديناري

My Green Dinar

 I saw the candy seller –  He was shouting “Candy”

My candy is very delicious – You will never forget its taste

I had a Dinar in my hand – I was staring at the candy

I gave the Dinar to the seller – I asked him for a candy

He gave me the candy – It was delicious

I saw a child – He was staring at the delicious candy

I went to him And – I gave him my candy

He was crying – I wiped away his tears

He told me – I am Ali My mother and father died

I am tired of this misery – I live with my neighbors

The seller noticed us – He heard the story

He gave us a Dinar – My Dinar is green

I saw the candy seller – He was shouting “Candy”
