From the ‘Hamásah’: Translation of Sir Charles James Lyall

OF thee did I dream, while spears between us were quivering—
  and sooth, of our blood full deep had drunken the tawny shafts!
I know not—by Heaven I swear, and here is the word I say!—
  this pang, is it love-sickness, or wrought by a spell from thee?
If it be a spell, then grant me grace of thy love-longing—        5
  if other the sickness be, then none is the guilt of thine!
