Palestine. A poem

by Giulio Stocchi Tuesday, Apr. 16, 2002 at 2:28 AM
gstocchi@planet.it 0248003443 Corso Magenta 88. 20123 Milano. Italy

Poem writen with verses taken from the Psalms of David. Against the violence and blasphemy of Sharon's policy. With prayer to circulate it

Dear friends




The reason for my writing you is to present this poem,translated in english. I strongly urge you to circulate the poem in the net, sending it to your links, to the newspapers, sending written copies or posters so as to help to sensitize the public opinion to confront Sharon's misfortunate politics.

The poem, as you will see, is composed of verses taken from the Psalms of David, the most honorable words in the jewish culture and religion. Words that, if realized, would significate the triumph of peace for the Israeli, the Palestinians and for us all.

These rare words, in the mouth of Palestine today, which could easily be pronounced by other peoples or nations, and by each of us, uncovers, in all it's nakeness, the blasphemy of Sharon - defining it terrorism is being mild - and perhaps in minds not yet sleeping or perverted, could prime reason and reflection.



thank you for your attention and waiting for a response

sincerely

In my website you can find other poems about war and peace, also in english, like The red cantata for Tall el Zaatar.



PALESTINE



Turn thee unto me and have mercy upon me


for I am desolated and afflicted

Consider mine enemies for they are many


and they hate me with cruel hatred


Psalm 25, 16, 19

Dogs have compassed me


the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me

They pierced my hands


and my feet


Psalm 22, 16

And speak peace to their neighbours


but mischief in their hearts

Give them after the work of their hands


according to the wickedness of their endeavours


Psalm 28, 3, 4

Hear the desire of the humble


to judge the fatherless and the oppressed

That the man of the earth


may no more oppress


Psalm 10, 17, 18

The wicked said in his heart: I shall not be moved


for I shall never be in adversity

He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages


in the secret places doth he murder the innocent


Psalm 10, 6, 8

Though an host should encamp against me


my heart shall not fear

Though war should rise against me


in this will I be confident


Psalm 27, 3

For the needy


shall not always be forgotten

The expectation of the poor


shall not perish for ever


Psalm 9, 18




Giulio Stocchi

He studied philosophy at State's University of Milan and drama in the Accademia dei Filodrammatici in the same town.

He published with Einaudi the book of poetry and prose Compagno poeta.

L'altezza del gioco will be published in 2002.

He is member of the Club Psomega regrouping artists, philosophers, scientists to study the inventive thought.
