Farewell to Assad Homayoun of Persia. Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs

To an Exiled Patriot, Too Long from Home 
It is April, yet there remains 
Snow, dappled on the 
foothills of the Alborz range, 
Leeched from the perpetually 
Crisp and clouded summits 
of a silent, ageless place. 
And there, for now, the winds 
are hushed; few souls venture, 
Yet clear before, I see translucent, 
shimmering, your face. 
Winter goes, yet there remains 
Ice, hard beneath the 
drumhead of the Persian plains. 
And here, for now, the winds 
resound; Ferdowsi sleeps, 
While in the absence of your soul, I weep.
