DAY 15: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)
مار گزیده از ریسمان سیاه و سفید می‌ترسد mār gazide az rismān-e siyah va sefid mitarsad “Once bitten, twice shy.”Literally, “He who has been bitten by a snake, is (even) scared of a black-and-white rope.” Songs in Persian (Fārsī) I came across a song called Dishab (دیشب) by Marjan Farsad. Dishab means last night. The song is so beautiful, composition and all, but I wish I understood the exact meaning instead of having to rely on Google Translate. Kudos to whoever put this lyric video together. They also provided useful vocabulary. I’ve also added a link to a live performance of the song.

I dreamed you and your eyes. I kissed my lips. I fell asleep with a little bit. — With my pencil (pastel) blue and white. I took your photo on the moon. The cloud came and covered the moon. I saw my shadow. I got tight to kiss me. I cried, I was rubbing my eyes Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. — You starred in my eyes (maybe “I saw stars twinkle in your eyes”). I laughed myself alone. Loneliness that does not horn. (“That alone does not have horns and tails.”) Come on and make a mountain of sorrow. I miss you to laugh. Come on out of my memory. (“Calling into our memories.”) Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. — The wind came with a dandelion. The meeting was sitting next to me. You said you slept last night. Sleep seven to the king. I miss it for the moment. I’m rocking and the sound of wind and rain. Hoohu, ho, hoohu. Ho, ho, ho, ho, hoohu. My Day 15 Worksheet PIN ME! Related
