Poem Podcast from the Poetry Translation Centre

A chilly poem: ‘Snow’ by the wonderful Iranian poet, Azita Ghahreman, who now lives in exile in snowy Sweden.

The seemingly endless snow is a metaphor for the hopelessness the poet feels – she and her lover are lost in its vastness. Only ‘a single stray earring’ can be seen – ‘not a tree, not a rabbit, not a star’.

You can buy the book  'Negative of A Group Photo' from the PTC online: petrytranslation.org/shop.
