The Sun Was Never A Child



Just experimenting, The type is a typeface I modified.. it is a poem by the Iranian poet Sirous Jamali.
Here’s an unofficial horrible translation I will do my best… it should butcher the poem because I’m not a translator, but it will get the main message across.. minus the graceful manner in which it does it in Farsi.

Come sit. There is space.
The one who promised to bring me dreams
came and took away my sleep too
I was naive, thinking about the sun's childhood
but I completely forgot
that the sun was never a child.

This is gorgeous!  What is the Persian?  I am having trouble reading the calligraphy.  It looks like the first line would read "There is room, come, sit," but I have trouble reading the rest.
