Persian is a beautiful and musical sounding language
It is primarily spoken in Iran (natively known as فارسی Farsi [fɒːɾˈsiː] or پارسی Parsi), Afghanistan (officially known as “Dari” since 1958 for political reasons), Tajikistan (officially known as “Tajik” since the Soviet era) and other countries which historically came under Persian influence. The Persian language is classified as a continuation of Middle Persian, the official religious and literary language of Sassanid Persia, itself a continuation of Old Persian, the language of the Persian Empire in the Achaemenid era. Persian is a pluricentric language and its grammar is similar to that of many contemporary European languages.

This is an hommage to one of the most famous poet of Iran, with the words of her child-poem “The little Ali”.
