Armenian Grief - Poem by Hovhannes Toumanian

Armenian grief is a sea,
A fathomless, boundless main.
In that dark expanse drifts my soul,
Mournful, in mortal pain.
Now furiously it rears
And the azure coastline seeks,
Now weary it disappears,
Seeking peace in the deeps.
But neither can it find the bottom,
Nor can it reach the shore...
In the sea of Armenian sorrows
My soul languishes evermore.
