Gevorg Christianian - NOTIONS OF LOVE

Let Notions of Love…

“If there is no love,
Why live in this evil world?”

Vahan Terian

Let notions of love, like manna,
Descend abounding from endless orbs,
And we, face to face, let us sit silent
And fantasize until daybreak.

And let there be revelry at sunrise,
For the moon that smiled all night long,
And as a sacred rite, let me offer you,
Once more, the reborn sun of springtime.

Let me weave a diadem
With flare-like flowers of Shirak
To adorn your pristine breast and fair brow,
Let words of my love, like a bouquet,
Breathe in light, radiance and dew…

And from morning to sunset,
Let them spread the scent of you.

Gevorg Christinian
translated by Tatul Sonentz
