The Literary Groong - 04/24/2018


    By Bedros Afeyan

    Armenian songs sad and strong 
    Shielded landmarks, mountains cropped 
    Fierce freedom pooled in lakes of reasoned chords 
    Birds bearing witness, melancholy drones 
    Joyous village dancers and wedding drums
    Huddled stoves, early morning bread'n prayers 
    Rising hope, horizon's keys sharp and fair 
    Jump into the fire set by the strangers 
    Their's is but a false prophet of death or dispair

    Armenian songs sad and strong 
    Give life to magic mountains 
    Where future lovers never quarrel
    But yearn to weave their soft tales home 
    Stones bearing crosses to the bone
    A language born in wit's own poem
    To glimpse eternal flames 
    As love casts its shadows blue 
    In Armenian songs sad and strong

    Pleasanton, CA
