Valentines Day Persian Rhymes & Sweets


In honor of Valentines day, I have a Persianized Valentine’s Day ditty for you:

Pomegranates are red

Asseman is blue

Tut is sweet

and so are tu!

(That means YOU!)

And also:

As my lovely friend Lena K says: “Celebrate love while you can, always.”

May as well celebrate love with sparkly dainty sugar-coated Persian marzipan mulberries. Ideally while whistling: Tut for two And tut for tea Just me for you And you for me

And also:

As the revered Persian poet Hafiz put it so eloquently: “Go through this world giving love. Giving love.”

Happy Valentine’s Day !!!

Love, love, love!

  • What a thoughtful Valentine’s post, Azita. I love that saying of Rumi, he is one of my guides throughout my life. Sending you lots of rays of warm sun to melt some of the vast snow around you.
