	By Varoujan Froundjian

	Your face is the autumn light shining
	Through leaves hung by frozen
	Branches on the early harvest time
	Wetness of your lips reflect sunlight 
	Gleaming on the horizon yellow
	Purple clouds laugh while their hems drop-
	The early rains of morning flood

	She lies down next to me and I see
	Her cloud blossom breasts
	Tinkle by the breeze blowing
	Across the sheets.
	Then I walk down the staircase 
	Of her marble ribs and find a meadow
	Shadows extend towards east...
	It will rain soon.
	The purple mist gathers above 
	Her cornfield lids ...
	Wish I were her dreams 

	You enter my garden like
	A goddess in ancient tales, 
	Gliding above purple lakes, 
	Letting lilies kiss your hips
	I long my hand towards you
	And my wishes narrowly dim...
