Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind does move
Silently, invisibly.

I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart;
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears,
Ah! she did depart!

Soon as she was gone from me,
A traveler came by,
Silently, invisibly
He took her with a sigh.

To da ljubis pusti price
Priznat ljubav, to je krivo
Jer njezni se vjetar mice
U tisini, nevidljivo.

Priznao sam ljubav svoju
Cijelim srcem, punog glasa
Drhtao u hladnom znoju
Otisla je istog casa.

I par kada dana mine
Prolaznik je, cudi plahe,
Nevidljivo, sred tisine,
Odveo ju uz uzdahe.

Apni mehbooba ko kabhi bhi na bataao
Wo muhabbat ki batain jo nahin kaheen jaateen;
Kyon kay narm hawaa chalti hai
Chupke se, bina dekhay.

Main nay apni mehbooba ko sub kuch bata diya,
Apna dil us par sub khol diya;
Thanthanaati, dhandi, bhyanak dar main,
Haey! Wo chali gaee!

Jaisay hi wo gayee mere paas se
Ek chalta-phirta aadmee aa gaya,
Chup kay se, bina dekhay,
Aur saans bhar kar usay lay giya.

The Nubian People [ The Nubians ]

The Nubians of Northern Africa embrace a history and tradition that is easily traced to the dawn of civilization.
The Nubians hold esteemed credentials that identify them as the very first people of whom modern archaeologists have evidence of from northeastern Africa.
The Nubians settle along the great Nile River from Aswan Egypt, to south of Sudan's capital of Khartoum.

The Nubians are an ancient people dating back to 4000 BC. Numbering approximately one million, the Nubians in both Sudan and Egypt
suffer from intentional discrimination because of their non-Arab descent. Following the construction of the Aswan High Dam in 1960,
the Nubians faced a painful exodus from their ancient dwellings. Hundreds of thousands of Nubians were forced to leave their homeland
because of flooding from the newly constructed dam. They were dispersed to less fertile areas in both Sudan and Egypt.
Great Nubians monuments and historical sites were lost as a result of the construction of the dam. The Nubians lost their ancient homeland in the 1960's,
but their culture and heritage remain ever constant. The Nubians are non-Arab Muslim tribes who speak mostly Arabic.
Although Nubians once were strong Christians during the sixth century, they are virtually all Muslims today.
The Nubians were converted to Christianity during the sixth century. They remained Christians until the gradual process of Islamization began to take place
from the fourteenth until the seventeenth centuries. The Nubians hold a few vestiges to their Christian past.
The symbol of the cross is still seen in the decorations of many Nubian homes.

In addition, children are dipped in the Nile at the age of three days which is reminiscent of baptism.
