Set In Friendship… 2008-2k13


Callous minds won’t morph to rose

Vacant pages, never as a book pose

When set in friendship! O’ my dear

For beloveds then, no accounts steer.

    Such translations are like digging up gems from the treasures of poetry, The rendering is beautiful, poetry into poetry not poetry into translation. Keep it up dear poet. (Report) Reply
