Khosrow Golesorkhi and his comrade Keramat Daneshian were executed in Tehran to become one of the most unforgettable icons of the Iranian leftists. Khosrow Golesorkhi was born in Rasht on Jan, 23, 1945. After his father died, he moved to Qom with his mother and later came to Tehran. His tendencies towards left got him involved in one of the communist groups banned by the Pahlavi regime. After his arrest and a long prosecution that was broadcast on public TV, he was sentenced to death. He was a talented poet who inspired many other poets and songwriters later. He started his defense at the court with these lines that had a share in public uprising against the dictator's regime:
"These are the tall pines
that sing amorously
in the middle of the jungle
the current green song of joining
to the people of the city.
Not your eyes, you better than the pine jungle
are now naked against the ax
with the green of your tree of chaos
This green mourner of the spring
this hanging black outfit,
does it somehow relate
to this land?
The one who made my soil mournful
Did he break
after carrying so much booty?
