مقام المنصوري - الحاج حامد السعدي

Maqam Mansuri
Hamed al-Sa‘adi and al-Chalghi al-Baghdadi

Baghdad, Iraq
c. 1995



The sung poem is a takhmis by an unknown author derived from a qasida attributed to Ibn Nubata al-Sa'di (938-1115):

مقام المنصوري من اداء قارئ المقام الحاج حامد السعدي وفرقه الچالغي البغدادي (الجوزه: صهيب هاشم الرجب، السنطور: غازي محسوب العزاوي، الدمبك: فاضل السعدي) وتسجيل من منتصف التسعينات. التسجيل الاصلي من مجموعه الاستاذ نجم العيداني / منتدى سماعي للطرب العربي الاصيل. الشعر تخميس لشاعر مجهول لقصيدة منسوبه لابن نباتة السعدي

ومورد الخدين لف ببرده * غصنا وزر عليه طرة بنده

ناديته لما استبد بعهده * يا من حوى ورد الرياض بخده
وحكى قضيب الخيزران بقده

لك يا امير الحسن أمر مبرم * تنهي بأرباب الغرام وتحكم
وانا لأمرك طائع ومسلم * ان شئت تعذيبي فأنت محكم
من ذا يعارض سيدا في عبده

لك بيض أجفان وقد اغمدت * لكن على قتل النفوس تعودت
قتلت ومن اجفانها ما ان بدت * كل السيوف قواطع ان جردت
وحسام لحظك قاطع في غمده

قلبي بحبك لايزال متيما * دنفا على كيد االوشاة تعلما
رحماك يا حلو الشمائل واللمى * لا تستمع قول الوشاة فربما
نقلوا الحديث الى الحبيب بضده

The rose complexionated beauty's head-ornament hides a branch,

Which she has covered with dew and which shines like silver,
I questioned her before she could abuse her power.
And you, whose cheeks are like the poppy and the waist like the reed,
O you, princess of beauty who gives firm commands,
You dictate your law to the gods of love and rule over them.
I submit myself to you and yield to your commands.
If you wish to torture me, you alone are judge.
Who can stand against a master who commands his slave?
Your lashes are swords that shine, even in the scabbard,
And which are accustomed to beheading souls.
Lashes that kill as soon as they are revealed.
All swords cut once they are unsheathed,
But your lashes wound, even in the sheath.
My heart, always, is eager for your love,
And remains insensitive to blows by informers.
For pity's sake, O you, whose lips are so beautiful,
Listen no more to lying spies,
They may tell the beloved the opposite of what has been said.
