The Procession – by Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran, the poet and painter, born circa 1883 and died at the age of 48 in 1931, wrote a fairly prolific amount during his time on earth. This book is comprised of some of his poetry, with an equally lovely introduction to this son of the Levant by translator and editor from the original Arabic, Dr. George Kheirallah.

Khalil’s reflections on varied topics and human characteristics portray the bulk of most of his work; this compendium uniquely paints into perspective the views from a youthful advantage and the experience of sage wisdom.

My favorites in this selection include: Of Justice (Sage); Of Soul and Fertility (both Sage and Youth); Of Death and Immortality (Youth); and The Summing of the Youth.
