Ruben Sevak - ARMENIA

Who is sobbing thus in front of my shack?
            It is the exile -- sister, open the door…

Lamenting skeletons? Elapsing outside, alack!
            It is the famine – open your door…

Is that a cleaver battering my door to wreck?
It is the slaughter – open your door…

……………………. Ruben Sevak
(1909)

Translated by Tatul Sonentz
