Lone Traveler

در مشهد و یزد و قم و سمنان و لرستان
لطفی است که در کلگری و نیس و پکن نیست

in my homeland towns of Meshad, Yazd, Qom, Semnan and Lorestan,
I have seen amazing things that I have never experienced in Calgary, Nice, or Beijing.

Dans mes villes natives de Meshad, Yazd, Qom, Semnan et Lorestan,
J’ai vu des merveilles que jamais il ne m’a été donné de voir à Calgary, Nice ou Beijing.

Khosrow Farshidvard 1929–2009 [wikipedia Farsi]

a bit of context

He was a scholar in Persian literature. He knew many old and new languages and wrote many articles about the modern Farsi grammar and literary styles. He was not appreciated in his own time and left life in an elderly care center.
