from Son of Mountains: Two Kurdish Poems

As a Kurdish poet wrote:
I swear by mountains
I will move the entirety of Kurdistan whole
To my tiny room
In the foreign land

I am like the poet Hemin Mukriyani; I say
Oh friends, whom I will never forget––
I am a wanderer now, if you recognize me, if you see me!

Note: these two poems have been translated from Kurdish to English from memory by Yassin Aref.
