NAHABED KOUTCHAK lived in the latter part of the 15th century. Although he wrote only love songs, he is revered as a saint, and his grave near Van is a place of pilgrimage.
THY face is like a moon that shines on earth,
Like a thick night thy clustering tresses be;
Apples of paradise thy temples are,
And thy deep eyes were lent thee by the sea.
Thou hast arched brows and dark, dark eyes, my love;
Peerless art thou among earth’s countless girls.
Thine eyelashes are arrows to my heart;
Thy mouth is a moist tulip, full of pearls.
