Archie Minasian: The Tiger Wind

The wind,
playing in the violets,
sprang upon me.

Oh! I thought,
if I could be so familiar
with her.

Published in ARMENIAN-NORTH AMERICAN POETS: AN ANTHOLOGY (St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Manna Publishing, 1974), Lorne Shirinian, editor.

In 1945, Khatchik Minasian won the Edwin Markham Gold Medal for Poetry. He was born in Fresno, CA in 1913.

El Viento del Tigre
(Traducción de Carolina Contino)
El viento,
jugando en las violetas
saltaba sobre mí.

Oh! pensé,
si pudiera serle a ella
así de familiar.
