—————————————————

Four lines excerpted from an unnamed poem written by the 6th-century poet Antara ibn Shaddad are written to form the shape of a curved sword. The text is a macabre twist from the traditional love poem. The text reads:

And surely I recollected you, even when the lances were drinking my
blood, and bright swords of Indian make were dripping with my blood.
I wished to kiss the swords, for verily they shone as bright as the flash of
the foretooth of your smiling mouth.

This poem is included in the seven Mo'allaqat, a collection of seven poems from the pre-Islamic era, widely considered to be the finest examples of poetry from that time.
