Translation: A Bird Is Just a Bird by Forough Farrokhzad


A Bird Is Just a Bird

by Forough Farrokhzad


The bird said:

What scent, what sun! 

Ah, spring is ready

I will go search for my kindred match. 

The bird leapt from the lip of the balcony

like a message, the bird flew and left  


Little bird 

The bird wasn't thinking.

The bird wasn't reading the news.

The bird didn't have debt.

The bird didn't recognize people. 


On the wind

and aloft streetlights

in the heights of unknowing she was flying

and madly she was experiencing

the blue moments .


The bird, oh... she was just a bird!
