The Armenian Diaspora Project

There is a walnut tree

Growing in the vineyard

At the very edge of the world.

My people, you are like

That huge ancient tree---

With branches blessed by the graces

But sprawling

Over the small corner of land

Roots and arms spread out

And spilling your fruit

To nourish foreign soils

-Sylva Gaboudikian
