Ahmad reza Ahmadi Poems
Again From The Sky
The sky is blue again, It is covered by black lines
The loving roads Led to the town through our hearts
Among those odes And the violets which were trampled
Won't Speak To You
Of the earth sleeping in the rain. For me, the praise of earth,
Among those odes
And the violets which were trampled
I need an ode
To mount a boat
And sail from the bombed town
To the river shore
And to carry the refugees wrapped in white bed-sheets
Into the house.
