A Bahraini Poem in Calligraphy [PIC]

With the Spring of Culture in full swing, I thought I could share a bit of home made culture with you. My mother (Dr. Nabeela Zubari) is a Bahraini Poet of some renown it seems. She has 4 published books so far. Bahrain is a recurring theme in her poetry. Her cousin, Mr. Khalid Zubari is a calligraphy Hobbyist. He wrote one of my mothers poems on a Burdi sheet of paper. I thought it looked nice so I placed it on my desktop and thought I'd share it with the world. I thought I'd translate it but I don't think I have the skill to bring over the artistic symbols. Can someone else do that?

Hope you like it.
