Nader Naderpoor - THE GARDEN

A thousand years were not enough
and shall never be sufficient
to retell that eternal departed moment
that instant when I held you clinging hard against me
in the garden of our sonnet
at dawn in the winter light of our elegy
a sonnet that is our birthplace, yours and mine
an ode fallen to earth
an earth that – among the stars –

is a star.


Nader Naderpoor (1929-2000)
translated by Tatul Sonentz
from the French translation by Sylvie M. Miller
