Uma poesia da poetisa iraniana Nazanin Nezam Shahidi, traduzida do persa para inglês por M. Alexandrian:
that which awakened the earth
was the shining hand of October,
and that which helped time roll
was the autumn's branch -
the remaining contracted pain of summer,
to set aside
the dust accumulated cover,
my eye-lid and that of earth.
in front of my eye and earth
risen from asleep
the blue skin of the windowpane's backside!...
