Arabic calligraphy text (English)

The temple's door has become a pile of ashes / but my harp still holds the air of its arches / pushing its columns upright / This blood is no longer defenseless.
—Hanna Abu Hanna

Arabic calligraphy text (Arabic)

عند باب الهيكل المهدور أكوام رماد / لم تزل قيثارتي تعقد في الجوّ قناطر / وتقيم الأعمدة / من دم ما عاد أعزل.
—حنا أبو حنا
