Abū 'Abd Allāh Ja'far ibn Muḥammad al-Rūdhakī and also known as Adam of Poets (858— 941) was a Persian poet regarded as the first great literary genius of the Modern Persian language.


  • I saw a bird near the city of Sarakhs
    It had raised its song to the clouds
    I saw a colorful chador on it
    So many colors on its chador.
  • Look at the cloud, how it cries like a grieving man
    Thunder moans like a lover with a broken heart.
    Now and then the sun peeks from behind the clouds
    Like a prisoner hiding from the guard
