In the leaden backdrop of the dawn
the horseman stands in silence
the long mane of his horse

disheveled by the wind.

O, Lord ! O, Lord!
Horseman are not to stand still,
when the event is brewing.
Beside the burnt hedge
the girl stands in silence
her delicate skirt

waving in the wind.

O, Lord! O, Lord!
Girls should not to remain silent,
when weary and hopeless
men grow old.

Ahmad Shamlu
