Gift

Rating: 2.9
I speak out of the deep of night
out of the deep of darkness
and out of the deep of night I speak.

If you come to my house, friend
bring me a lamp and a window I can look through
at the crowd in the happy alley.

here: http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-gift-83/ there is a different (much better) translation of the same poem - title: 'THE GIFT', and the text is here below: 'The Gift' I am speaking to you- from the edge of darkness, and about the depths of night. I am talking about the thickness of absolute shade. Darling! If you are coming to visit me, Then, bring me a torch, and put up for me- a little window. I will then watch- the noisy crowd of the happy lane.

from even the most beautiful land, Iran, darkness still resides. From the moment I heard the recitation of this poetry, i was curious to learn more, thanks to the Kiarostami film, The Wind Will Carry Us.
