White Elephant
by Rasul Reza (1910-1981 )

Written in Cairo, Egypt

They say,
Evening brings sorrow.
They say,
Dark nights are boring.
They say...
They say...
And what about the daytime?
And in the daytime,
We are so impatiently waiting
For the day to draw to a close,
And for the night to come!

Translated by Aynur Hajiyeva
