Ts. Banu

TS. BANU: "Whose Flesh, Tell Me..."

"Whose Flesh, Tell Me..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
Whose flesh, tell me, o jug, into your form was grown?
Of that singer in love, like me – in years gone?
And this clay handle, I think, was before
The arm, winding a neck of the sweetheart his own. 


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
