ARMENIAN SONG 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 3-17-2018 Pleasanton, CA -- Dr. Bedros Afeyan is a theoretical physicist who works and lives in the Bay area with his wife, Marine.
