quatrain 720

From sunlight, two more versions of quatrain #720. The Houshmand version is discussed at the pen and the eyelash. I must say these two are greatly inferior to her version.

Your love has filled me
with a madness
no one could ever know.

Your gaze has enchanted my heart
with a poem
no one could ever write.

version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva

One day
You will take my heart completely
and make it more fiery than
a dragon.
Your eyelashes will write on my heart
the poem
that could never come from the pen
of a poet.

trans by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
