They Asked How I Was…

And I said, well, and thank you,

A need is fulfilled and another is neglected,

When distress is such that my heart becomes constricted,

I say that perhaps one day will bring with it some aid,

My comrade is my cat, and my soul’s companions are my books,

And the object of my love is my night-lantern.

-Ibn Faris.
