"Parts of The Cold Season"

Let us believe,
let us believe in the beginning of the cold season.
let us believe in the ruin of the garden of dreams,
in unloaded, abandoned spades, and in caged seeds.

The snow is falling outside.

Perhaps, Truth was those young hands.
They are now buried under the unending blow of snow.

when the spring makes love-
to the blue reflection of the sky-
and the green stream of fresh grass-
flows in its veins- they will flourish, my Beloved!
They will flourish, My Beloved!
Forough Farrokhzad , 1967
