Treasure Island

Nassy Fesharaki

(Dec 29 / Iran)

He knows


Not far from his home
A magic tree stands
Alone, free

And he knows
And he knows
And he knows

Love
Freedom
Loving freedom

Rendezvous

Not far from his home
Stands a monument
Mountain, chained

And he knows
And he knows
And he knows

Love
Freedom
Loving freedom

Rendezvous

There Farhad
Stone carver chiseled
Once rose his axe on himself:
"Death better than life without her"

Now in exile
Magically alone
With people around

He knows love.
He knows freedom.
He finds them absent.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
