I am in the process of writing a short story for publication in the most recent Tears of the Phoenix charity anthology. In the story, the protagonist is given a book of poems by an Ethiopian poet, and one of them forms the cornerstone of the story. However, I neither speak nor write Amharic.
I have the poem in English,and was wondering if anyone here would be willing to translate it for me. It is short - seventeen lines (about 80 words). Submissions are due on November 1st.
If you are interested, you can find the poem and more explanation of the context, here at my LJ.
I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!
