Beauty of Nature


I went to the garden and drank some ale
And heard the wailing of the nightingale

Blooming there also was a beautiful rose
But, unlike the birds, it had no woes

It looked so happy, so vigorous, so proud
Standing alone and above the crowd.

The narcissus also was looking very grand,
Had a tulip in waiting with a cup in hand

The iris there also lashing its tongue
Scolding them all, whether old or young,

And holding a flask was there a lass
Pouring red wine in everyone's glass

And there was Hafiz singing his song
Telling us to come and sing along.
