Alvard Petrosian - URBAN FOLKLORE

With no one
to welcome it,
springtime
comes in vain.
What does
its arrival mean?
No one wants
to till any more!
With poets and
bards half frozen
and lovers now
over the hill,
no one is left
to sing its songs,
spring shows up
for no purpose.
Time, they say,
is made of gold,
of wicked curse
and damnation.

Arvard Petrosian
translated by Tatul Sonentz
