Nowruz by Jamileh Kharrazi جمیله خرازی

برایت سال خوشحالی، که باشد حال تو عالی

برایت تخمه و فندق، طلا و نقره در صندوق
برایت پسته ها در باز، برایت خانه ای دلباز
برایت ماهی و سبزه، کبابی خوب خوشمزه
برایت پرتغال و سیب، تراول های نو در جیب
برایت اجیل و بادام، برایت خاطری آرام
برایت بهترین همسر، که بگذارد تو را بر سر
برایت ده پسر دختر، یکی از دیگری بهتر
برایت بالشی از پر، برایت کیسه های زر
برایت عطر و بوی مشک، سه گونی اسکناس خشک
برایت شربتی از قند، همیشه بر لبت لبخند
برایت کار و بار جور، خبر های خوشی از دور
در آخر صد سفر پرواز کنی سال خوشی آغاز
سال نو مبارك
