A romantic poem by Forough Farrokhzad in semi-traditional and four-poster formats

Tonight you see the sky

Comes on a star’s poem

In the winter, the plain of paper

My claws spark

My crazy poetry is feverish

Shameful from the groove of desires

Reinforces her face

The thirst for eternal flames

Yes, it’s the beginning of love

Although the end of the road is awkward

I do not stop

That love is beautiful

The night is full of diamond drops

Why do not you fear the black

What remains of the night

The scent is Jasmine
