I am full of light and sand

I am full of light and sand,

Full of trees,

I am full of roads, bridges, rivers, and waves,

Full of a shadow of a leaf on the water,

How lonely I am inside.

 

From the poem of “The expanse of green” by Sohrab Sepehri, a famous Iranian poet

Translated and dedicated to Carl Leggo by Leila Bolouri, a Master’s in Education student at the University of Victoria
