(For Shahrookh Meskoob)

My heart is heavy with woe,

And I have my tired gaze

On the crimson glow of the sun

In the picture on the wall

Setting melancholically

On the glassy bed of reeds.


From the depths of the frozen silence





The hopeful sound

Of a shepherd's flute

With the sweet breath of dawn

In an awakening green valley.
