Greatest Wish Song If freedom could sing a song small as the throat of a bird, nowhere would a wall remain crumbled.

The great absence was this. The story of ruin was this. A thousand happy larks fly in your eyes, a thousand canaries fall silent in my throat. If only love could speak. We must hide love in the backroom. In the cold of this dead-end crooked road they stoke their pyres with our poems and songs.

We must hide light in the backroom. Those are butchers in passageways with their chopping blocks and bloodies cleavers.

Such strange times, my sweet They carve smiles off faces and sever songs from mouths. We must hide pleasure in the back room. We must hide God in the back room.

Ahmad Shamloo

Shamlou was arguably the most influential poet of modern Iran. In fact, Abdolali Dastgheib , Iranian literary critic, argues that Shamlou is one of the pioneers of modern Persian poetry and has had the greatest influence, after Nima, on Iranian poets of his era. For infrastructure and impact, he uses a kind of everyday imagery in which personified oxymoronic elements are spiked with an unreal combination of the abstract and the concrete thus far unprecedented in Persian poetry, which distressed some of the admirers of more traditional poetry. Shamlou has translated extensively from French to Persian and his own works are also translated into a number of languages. He has also written a number of plays, edited the works of major classical Persian poets, especially Hafiz.

Three Poems by Ahmad Shamlou

Vartan Salakhanian, an Armenian Iranian born in Tabriz, was affiliated to the Tudeh Party of Iran which was an illegal communist party. Seemingly Vartan knew the whereabouts of some other members of the party and the location of the print house where anti-establishment books and notices were published in a clandestine manner. The horrible incident inspired Shamlou to write a poem commemorating Vartan and his loyalty to his comrades. Throughout the poem Vartan is represented as the symbol of resistance. He is also the harbinger of spring and the end of winter. Poetry was used as a weapon by the Iranian revolutionaries and the readers are expected to read between the lines and decipher the hidden meanings of the metaphors and symbols.
