Mohammad Hossein Behjat-Tabrizi (known by his pen name, Shahryar or Shahriar) a famous Iranian poet, born in Tabriz (1906-1988) , went to Tehran to study medicine. But he fell in love and left his studies about a year before his finals. He failed to be with his love, and his deep, burning love had a great effect on his life and poetry. The above poem is one of his famous love poems 'hala chera' which can be translated as 'why now?', written after a visit by his love after many years. To me the poem is inspired by love and anger and is full of nostalgic feeling. It's one of my favourite persian poetry.
