Seven Seens: It all started from a seed:
Sprouts began to gather speed - Sabzeh (sprouts) was swinging to trust some deed
Then we cooked some wheat to feed - Samanu (sweet pudding) is what we called that sweet
Smiling with its purple cheeks, there came a big rosy Seeb (Apple)
The cure for all disease… Seer (garlic) defeats them all, indeed
Senjed (dried wild olive) stands for something sick; Love is the remedy you all seek
Paint some eggs and tweak the green tall Hyacinth leaves
These warm rays of sunrise feel, Just like those of Sumac beans
Be more patient as we seek; Serkeh (vinegar), one last thing, for this spring
Lose yourself to the sound of reeds
May Nowruz bring all good deeds. .
