باز کن پنجره ها را که نسیم
روز میلاد اقاقی ها را
جشن می گیرد
روی هر شاخه کنار هر برگ
شمع روشن کرده است
"Open the windows, for the breeze
is celebrating the birthday
of the acacias;
on every branch, beside every leaf,
has lit a candle."
More text and translation (not mine):
A recitation of the Persian:
Happy New Year, happy New Year, to Persians everywhere!
The original Persian holiday even if others have tried to appropriate it.
I’m genuinely happy to learn about this today!
Since then we have stuffed up the calendar mightily. We shifted the New Year by two months, from March 1st to January 1st, and then we stuffed up the changeover from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar by jumping days, instead of adding Leap days to keep everything synchronised. Thereby pushing the Equinox from the 1st to the 21st.
