Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

(1207 - 1273 / Persia)

Out Beyond Ideas


Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
