Abstract

Environmentally plant is a young tree, shrub or herb for planting. Imru al-Qays the pre-Islamic poet has poetically versed the description of the plants in many hemistichs. It hemistically can be compartmentalized into several categories, cloves, colocynth, henna, moss, onion, pepper, trees acacia, aloe, dal, jujube, palm and tamarisk. He has carefully portrayed the sweet smell of his beloved as a gentle breeze of the east wind arriving with the sweet smell of cloves.Moreover, he has craftily presented himself during the separation with his beloved, it was as though I were a man who broke colocynth near the acacia trees of the tribe. Furthermore, he has described beautifully the strength of his leading horse/camel (the blood on its neck is like the juice of henna). Imru al-Qays also has skillfully elucidated the destructive power of the rain in his popular poems in the evening, the birds of prey are drowned in the furthest, part of the desert Jiwa' like plucked roots of wild onion. The poet has beautifully arranged the lines by comparing the dung of white antelopes like the pepper, the separation like the man who broke colocynth near the acacia trees, the body sweats of his fast and strong horse like the murmuring of the wind passed the Ath'ab tree. The poet has continuously rhymed the lines by versing the dal, jujube, palm and tamarish. It is actually the plants, that assist the life of Bedouins in the barren land to survive.
