“A Young Couple in a Garden” – Khoda-Dad Khan Zand (Iran), 1856

(Farsi: ātashé del-am – “the fire of my heart”)

woo me

with the


of your


and play

my heart

like a


strum my

inner strings

with a


ours alone.


and i


your senses

with scent

with savour

with verses


heart and


a touch

to soothe

to tingle

to tempt.


and we

will find



in more

than passion

or longing;

in love.
