درخت آزادی



Quote: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants": Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the USA
درخت آزادی را باید گاه گاه با خون میهن پرستان و ستمکاران آبیاری کرد

  
The Liberty Tree (1646–1775) was a famous elm tree that stood in Boston near Boston Common, in
 the days before the American Revolution. Ten years before the American Revolution, colonists in Boston staged the first act of defiance against the British government at the tree. The tree became a rallying point for the growing resistance to the rule of Britain over the American colonies.

Liberty Tree
by Thomas Paine
 In a chariot of light from the regions of day,In the Goddess of Liberty came
Ten thousand celestials directed the way,nd hither conducted the dameA fair budding branch from the gardens aboveWhere millions with millions agreeShe brought in her hand as a pledge of her loveAnd the plant she named Liberty Tree=The celestial exotic struck deep in the groundLike a native it flourished and boreThe fame of its fruit drew the nations aroundTo seek out this peaceable shoreUnmindful of names or distinctions they cameFor freemen like brothers agreeWith one spirit
endued, they one friendship pursued
And their temple was Liberty Tree
Beneath this fair tree, like the patriarchs of old,
Their bread in contentment they ate
Unvexed with the troubles of silver and gold,
The cares of the grand and the great.
With timber and tar they Old England supplied,
And supported her power on the sea;
Her battles they fought, without getting a groat,
For the honor of Liberty Tree.
But hear, O ye swains, 'tis a tale most profane,
How all the tyrannical powers,
 Kings, Commons and Lords, are uniting amain

To cut down this guardian of ours
From the east to the west blow the trumpet to arms
Through the land let the sound of it flee
Let the far and the near, all unite with a cheerIn defence of our Liberty Tree

درخت آزادی

ای درختان_ سبز_ آزادی
بهر_ا نسا ن ، نها ل_ بنیادی

ای كه زا یند ه ی نشا ط_ فضا
ای نما د_ حیا ت و آ با دی

ریشه و ساقه ی شما خشك است
به دیار_ كهن : غمان وادی

نه گلستا ن ، نه پهنه بستا نی
یک جوانه ، نه رسته بر شادی

نه سرودی ز عشق و از امید
نه درودی ، نه با نگ و فریا دی

سربه سر محنت است و رنج و عذاب
نه عطوفت ، نه دست_امدادی

بستر_ خاك ، سرخ و خونین باد
ای درختان_ سبز_ آزادی
