De Oud Egyptische architektuur en kunst is zonder twijfel de meest boeiende uit onze geschiedenis.

2 liedjes of gedichten , afkomstig van de Harris Papyrus, (Brits Museum 10060).

I am sailing downstream on the ferry,
(Guided) by the hand of the helmsman,
With my bundle of reeds on my shoulder.
I am bound for Ankh-Tawy,
And I shall say to Ptah, the Lord of Ma’at,
“Grant me my beloved this night.”

The river is wine,
Ptah is its reeds,
Sekhmet is its lotus leaf,
Iadet is its lotus bud,
Nefertum is its lotus flower,

There is rejoicing as the land brightens in its beauty;
Memphis is a bowl of mandrakes
Laid before the god who is beauteous of face.

A Love poem
I shall go out [to seek my lover].
[I yearn] for your love,
And my heart stops within me,

To look at a sweet cake
Is like looking at salt;
Sweet pomegranate wine in my mouth
Is like the bitter gall of birds.

The breath of your nostrils
Is the sole thing which can revive my heart,
And I am determined that Amun will grant you to me
For ever and eternity.

nn ms.i sA.w -- No one is born wise.
