The Iranian poems are divided into two groups in this paper: Oral Poems, i.e. poems produced following the oral Iranian tradition; Written Poems, i.e. poems written after the Persian quantitative poetry which is some kind of an imitation of Arabic poetry. This article, after a brief discussion of Kurdish Izadi’s Aghwāl and Yaresān Kalamāt, as two examples of old oral Iranian Poems, compares some of their formal characteristics like line, rhyme, and meter; then, in the light of some West Iranian Poems, the article concludes that Izadi’s Aghwāl are much older than Yaresān’s Kalamāt, and Yaresān Kalamāt have lost some of their oral characteristics under the influence of Persian quantitative poetry.
