A Message On The Road
One dayI will come, and bring a message. I will pour light into veins. And will cry out: O’ whose baskets are full of sleep! I brought you apples, the red apple of the sun I will present to the beggar a jasmine flower. I will give the pretty leper woman a gift of earrings. I will tell the blind man: The garden is so spectacular! I will be a peddler, peddle through alleys and cry out: Dew, dew, dew. A passerby will say: honestly, tonight is a dark night, I will give her the Milky Way. There is a legless girl on the bridge, I will put a constellation of stars around her neck. I will take away all the curses on the lips. I will tear down all the walls. Sohrab Sepehri Translated by Mahvash Shahegh Leave a poem for us if you like. Have a great Wednesday everybody!
