Majid Naficy: Conquering the Garden

Larks do not send troops
As noisy crows do
And have better ways
To conquer the garden.

In a respite between two storms
They come out of their shelters
And sing lovesongs
In praise of the sun.

Majid Naficy has published two collections of poetry in English Muddy Shoes (Beyond Baroque, Books, 1999) and Father and Son (Red Hen Press, 2003) and more than twenty books of poetry and essays in Persian.
