The First Rains of Spring


Notes on the literal translation:

[1] *Here there is a strong alliteration in Persian, which it would be nice to re-create in English if it's possible:
SHAGHEL - working in a trade/to have an occupation
These two words also come from the same root.

[2]‘Ordibehesht' month, which is the first month after the new year on 21st March

Elhum Shakerifar, Literal Translator
