The world oldest poem

Bridegroom, dear to my heart, Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet, Lion, dear to my heart, Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet. You have captivated me, Let me stand tremblingly before you. Bridegroom, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber, You have captivated me, Let me stand tremblingly before you. Lion, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber. Bridegroom, let me caress you, My precious caress is more savory than honey, In the bedchamber, honey-filled, Let me enjoy your goodly beauty, Lion, let me caress you, My precious caress is more savory than honey. Bridegroom, you have taken your pleasure of me, Tell my mother, she will give you delicacies, My father, he will give you gifts. Your spirit, I know where to cheer your spirit, Bridegroom, sleep in our house until dawn, Your heart, I know where to gladden your heart, Lion, sleep in our house until dawn. You, because you love me, Give me pray of your caresses, My lord god, my lord protector, My Shu-Sin, who gladdens Enlil's heart, Give my pray of your caresses. Your place goodly as honey, pray lay your hand on it, Bring your hand over like a gishban-garment, Cup your hand over it like a gishban-sikin-garment. ...Michael Himick Museums of Istanbul: http://www.focusmm.com/istmuseu.htm

  9. quoteKrod wrote at Oct 16, 2009 at 09:03 o\clock:This is extraordinary, wonderful. The comments
    are what they are, ignorant, ugly. America
    is becoming a very frightening place where
    education is failing and darkness in the
    minds of many of the ignorant makes entries
    like the ones I found here commonplace.

  11. quoteErich wrote at Dec 21, 2009 at 04:59 o\clock:This is in fact one of the earliest love poems ever to be written. It is indeed written in one of the first forms of human writing, cuneiform. This is a beautiful poem that show human nature at is purest, untainted by the poisons of today's culture.
