Thirty Springs and an Autumn
This is Nineb Lamassu’s latest poetry collection, consisting of thirty poems; half of which are written in Eastern Assyrian and the other half in Western Assyrian.
Lamassu wrote these poems during the month of April 2017, as part of ‘A Poem a Day’ celebration of National Poetry Month.
Other than the challenge of writing a poem a day for the thirty days of April, Lamassu set himself yet another challenge: to end all of the poems with a paraphrase from Rabi William Daniel’s Qatine the Great masterpiece.
This is certainly a must read and comes highly recommended.
