	When Some Day

    By Hovannes Toumanian


    Dearest comrade, when you arrive some day
	To gaze upon my tomb,
    And scattered all around it see
	Bright flowers in freshest bloom,
    Think not that they are ordinary
	flowers at your feet thus born,
    Or that Spring has brought them here
	My new home to adorn.
    They are my songs unsung, which must
	Within my heart but hide;
    They are words of love left
	 Unuttered when I died.
    They are ardent kisses, my dear,
	Sent from that world unknown,
    The path to which before you lies,
	Blocked by this tomb alone!

    1894
