A Iranian poem written about Bristol. Made in partnership with City of Bristol College.
This story was created in the artist’s own time.
[The poem is in Iranian. An English translation is given here]
I have seen this place in my dreams,
Far, far away in my memory.
Blue sky between the trees,
That are as tall as the sky itself.
On the endless narrow roads of Nailsea I’m walking in a dreamland,
With the sounds of Redcliffe Church bells ringing.
Again I feel the melody of love while I’m dancing.
I’m moving away from the strawberry bushes and apple trees.
I reached the Avon River,
By the suspension bridge,
As if there was a magnificent silence governing the place.
I feel the calmness of the river,
And I feel the power of life,
In my spirit.
