V is for Vajdi

Wiki commons
Illiterate

I know a man
who reads all inscriptions on ancient stones
and who knows
the grammars of all languages, dead or alive,
but who cannot read
the eyes of a woman
whom he thinks he loves.

Shadab Vajdi

From the Virago Book of Love Poetry edited by Wendy Mulford.
