If I Were a Spider...
A Poem by Payman Akhlaghi
(English and Persian, 2017, Draft 2)

(*) First published at on May the 13th, 2017, under If I Were a Spider.

If I were a spider,
I'd keep weaving
A large safety web,
All over the world,
And I'd chase you
As you swung
From the blue sky,
Hopped the treetops,
Glided the clouds,
Till you got tired
At the twilight,
And dropped at last
Safely, for the night,
Into a moonlit dream...

"اگر عنکبوت بودم..."
شعری از پیمان اخلاقی
(نسخۀ دوم)

اگر عنکبوت بودم
می رفتم و می بافتم
تار امنی به وسعت دنیا،
همه جا دوان پی تو،
که از آسمان آبی
تاب می خوردی،
بر نوک درختان می پریدی
یا بر فرش ابرها
می خرامیدی،
تا دم غروب
که خسته می شدی
و سرانجام، بی دغدغه
در سبد تار من می افتادی:
آرامِ شبی دیگر
در رؤیایی روشن از مهتاب...
