Forough Farrokhzad Poems

Later On

It may be a bright, spring dawn,
It may be a distant winter dusk,
Or perhaps a silent night-

In an embrace which was warm and fiery.
I sinned surrounded by arms
that were hot and avenging and iron.

The Wave

To me you are a wave;
never here, never there!
You are –still- nowhere!

out of the deep of darkness
and out of the deep of night I speak.

The Bird May Die...

I feel sad,
I feel blue.
I go outside and rub my cold fingers-
on the sleek shell of the silent night.
