Just something beautiful that I've found online and that wanted to post on here since I haven't found a poetry thread. it comes from Andalusia in south of spain and it was used as a song too.

    When I saw my love sway, his beauty amazed us
    Something in a moment captivated us
    Like a branch bending gracefully
    Oh my fate, and reason for my perplexity
    Who could be the one to alleviate my sufferings in love and torment,
    Except the King of beauty
    Oh mercy, mercy, mercy

    This is some of my favorite music, from Islamic Al-Andalus (which is also the name of the house I am living in right now, as it happens). A lot of this is compiled on a great album called Jardines de Jasmin. From the same era, there is also lots of beautiful Judaeo-Spanish music in Ladino (which is "sort of" to Spanish as Yiddish would later be to German).

    From a time when the great religions of the world were a little more in harmony... than they are now.

    you mean "Jardins de jasmin", never heard about it but seems like it has good music.
    where can I find the album online?
