With Great Littleness! by E. Khoi /khoi:/
“Little water grows little fish”.
From the little fish of this little stream
No whale will be ever borne!
I am aware of my great littleness
I do accept this truth
When the drop of a little sand
Can disturb the dream of an aged stable swamp
No doubts that
This punching wrath
Does not beat in vain
On the walls of my little heart

I’m a little confused, there seem to be things that get pronounced that aren’t written in Farsi. “از اب خرد ماهی خرد خیزد” appears to be /az a:b khord ma:hi khord khizad/ but in your pronunciation I see /az a:b e khord ma:hi ye khord khizad/. The “e” and the “ye” don’t seem to be explained. Are they part of a rule, or just understood as a part of the language? Is this something explained further on?

I think the “e” and the “ye” are what they call “ezafe”,

The “e” and “ye” in between are connections between words that only show up when you speak but not when you write. This is kind of similar to pronouncing the English word “the” differently depending on the following word.
