Ahmad Shamloo

(1925-2000 / Iran / Tehran)

Come The Night


When was it and how
That breeze
Told me of your graceful amble?
How long has it been
Since your humble birth?
When was it and how
That fire
Told the story of my burning ecstasy?
How long has it been
Since a volcano last erupted?
When was it and how
That water
Talked of our flowing purity?
How long shall we wait
Until the sea storms again?
When was it and how
That the earth
Was an undeniable truth beneath our feet?
How long shall we wait
Until the birth of hope anew?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
