Artem Harutiunuan - GOSPEL SONG (ARTSAKH)

In the immensity of noon,
soars the highland with the mountain hues
hand in hand,
at the feet of an enormous sun
at its zenith, dissolving slowly.
Here, the words of Mashtots are real,
like this threshold of biblical purity
and distant freshness, impossible to breech
and twice unseen, as a supplicant's dream,
as a translucent thunderhead
that rains warm drops of longing,
that keeps looking for holy forefathers
face to face with the highland,
where the mulberry-tree's delicate shoulders,
twisting against deadly intent,
holler, Haiastan! Haiastan!


ARTEM HARUTIUNIAN
translated by Tatul Sonentz
