The Love Ballads Overview
The romantic poems of this book have been written (in Persian Language) over many years. Even though many of them dwell upon issues of consciousness and selfhood in expressing the marvel of one's ability to love the "other," the poems have aimed to evoke energies and feelings that are beyond or beneath language and rational thought. For man, the vast marvel is the ability to love. The supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly in love. Whatever the unborn and the departed may know, they cannot know the beauty, the marvel of the joy of loving, and the pain of longing. The departed may look after the afterwards. But the magnificent here and now of loving, and of life in the flesh is ours, and ours alone, and ours only for a time. We ought to dance with rapture that we should be in love, alive and in the flesh, and for being part of the living, incarnate universe. I am, only for a time, part of this universe as my eye is part of me and I love that. That I am part of humanity, my heart knows perfectly and I love that. That I am part of the earth, my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the ocean and I love that.
