Nima Yushij (November 12, 1896 - January 6, 1960) also called Nima, born Ali Esfandiari, was a contemporary Persian poet who started the "new poetry" trend in Iran. He is considered as the father of modern Persian poetry.
Nima died of pneumonia in Shemiran, in the northern part of Tehran and was buried in his native village of Yush per his will. Yush is located close to the town of Nour in northern province of Mazandaran.
The mausoleum of Nima, called Nima's House, dates back to the Safavid era and is 218 years old.
Yush village is surrounded by Alborz mountain. The beautiful road leading to Yush, and a river flowing nearby, make the village specially attractive to visit.

A poem by Nima Yushij:
My House Is Cloudy
My house is cloudy,
The whole earth is covered by cloud.
From the top of the mountain pass, shattered and drunk
Whirls the heavy wind,
Destroying all on earth
Including my senses.
O piper! who have been carried away by the music of your pipe; where are you?
My house is cloudy but
The cloud has started to pour down;
Fancying my bright days that are lost,
I stand towards the sun
And look at the expanse of the sea;
And all the world is demolished and beaten by the wind,
And on the road, the piper who plays the pipe for ever,
Pursues his path in this cloudy world.
