Farsi (Persian) term or phrase: Inatehk \\\\\\\'anneh
as a title of a love poem
azra
The Ornament of the House
Explanation:
It seems to me that the correct spelling of the phrase given should be:
"zinat-e khAneh'. If that's right, what I proposed above may refer to one's wife at home! Particularly as we know that it may be a 'pun': zinat in Persian is a female proper name, as well as a kind of ornament or decoration (embellishment).

Best regards

The shape of the letter \"z\" in Farsi is similar to \"A\". So we may happen to make a mistake in reading it!
