Agate Well--Mahsati Ganjavi

Agate Well--Mahsati Ganjavi

 I'm an agate well

Giving you refuge

Bolstering you with my silver cushion

Pour into me

Nine drops of your mercury

And nine months after, a full bright moon

I'll bring back to you.

 


  • By Mahsati Ganjavi--12th century poetess
  • Translated by Farzaneh Doosti
