Gholake Cheshat

Golake Cheshat
by Mehrdad Aref-Adib (Age 9) 1973

>> Simin Ghanem's Gholake Cheshat

تو همونی كه تو رویام تو رو من خواب می دیدم
تو چشات آسمون و آفتاب و مهتاب می دیدم
زلفاتو شب می خره تا توی اون لونه كنه
مث من صد تا دلو عاشق و دیوونه كنه

تو اونی ، همونی

از تو قلك چشات
سكه های رنگارنگ
می ریزه روی هوا
با صدای خنده هات
می شه از ستاره پر
آسمون رو سیا

تو اونی ، همونی

تو همونی ، اگه شب قصه بگی
چشم بی خوابمو پر خواب می كنی
تو همونی ، اگه با من بمونی
منو از آرزو سیراب می كنی

تو اونی ، همونی

از تو قلك چشات
سكه های رنگارنگ
می ریزه روی هوا
با صدای خنده هات
می شه از ستاره پر
آسمون رو سیا

تو اونی ، همونی

La Joie de Vivre

La Joie de Vivre (The Joy of Living) is a key work of French animation. This modern, floral ballet made by Anthony Gross and Hector Hoppin in 1934 falls within the modern aesthetics of the interwar years, strongly influenced by art deco.

The cartoon was drawn by Anthony Gross (1895−1984). He was born in London and studied at the Slade School of Art before moving to Paris to train as an etcher and engraver. He became interested in animations, of which he made several.
