"There is a walnut tree" by Silva Kaputikian


di Silva Kaputikian

There is a walnut tree
growing in the vineyard
at the very edge of the world.

My people, you are like
that huge ancient tree--
with branches blessed by the graces

but sprawling
over the small corner of land;
roots and arms spread out
and spilling your fruit
to nourish foreign soils.

(1946)
