Hrachia Saroukhan - FORGIVE ME

Forgive me
Gentle, stern saints,
Roslin, Greco and Raphael,
For my daring
To erase with tears
The dust of hues and hide in my soul.
My fingers sob for what is lost.
This desertion is horribly heavy.
Although Leonardo is my entire soul,
Narekatsi is casting me aside…

Take me in your stride,
Dante, Lorca and Charents,
And christen me with holy liquid…
What my brush did not do in my pious life,
My pen shall render –

Skilled and slender.

Hrachia Saroukhan

Translated by Tatul Sonentz
