Lusine | 3 comments I just found this and wanted to share with whoever ends up reading it...I think this is one of the most romantic poems ever written. It reads so vulnerably; so full of hope and at once helplessness. How talented can one have been to put into words such feelings...

Excerpts from «Երգ Երգոց»:

Geghetsik es du, inchpes bolor@,
Voronts sirum en.
Yev voch aveli u voch el pakas:
Inchd e geghetsik? urish@ kasi,
Minchder indz hamar du geghetsik es,
Inchpes bolor@ voronts sirum en:
Yev kaxardich es inchpes bolor@,
Voronts chen tirel:
Yev ansovor es,
Qani vor nor es.
Yev sovorakan` qani vor du el
Yerbeq ches karogh ch@sirvats mnal:

...

O Sulamita, bats ara durd:
Yes qez chem pntrel, qez chem voronel,
Chem el hartsrel yes pahaknerits
Qo` im chunetsats-chimatsats hastsen:
Yes jampordi pes,
U molorvatsi,

Vor yev baxum e im dzerq@ drsits,
Qo sirt@` nersits:

Anna | 26 comments Thanks for posting. I found a great documentary in Armenian that goes in detail about Sevak's and Sulamita's love story. I am sure you will enjoy it if you haven't seen it.
