Autumn in Bloomsbury*/By Mansoureh Shojaee -Kirsten Barfield

Monday 26 September 2011, by admin

Feminist School :The following poem is written by Mansoureh Shojaee and Kirsten Barfield which describes the autumn of Bloomsbury:

We are both in the heart of Bloomsbury

On the cold stones,

Under old trees,

In front of Virginia’s windows…

We are both in the heart of Bloomsbury

Far from our motherland

Near to the birthplace of our literature

In front of Virginia’s windows….

Here, in the heart of Bloomsbury

Autumn is coming

Through the colour of leaves

Through the colour of trees

Here , in the heart of Bloomsbury

Autumn is coming

Through the colour of our hearts,

Our tears are changed to golden and red

Here , in our coloured tears

Here, in bloomsbury’s colours

Here, in front of Virgina’s windows

Here, in our hearts

Autumn has come !

London:20 th. September
