Poetry Does That By Sato Amirian-Ajemian. The author is an Armenian poet living in Iran. Translated from the ArmenianDiana Der-Hovanessian. November 26, 1990 I painted a tree lonely stark gray under a dark wintry sky, a tree of loneliness. Then I added some birds whose song, sweet and quaint, made me forget why I started to paint.
