Ode To Hafez - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
The evening's cup to the brim holds Saki,
The sunset on the tavern sets the night.
The streets of Shiraz had the rapture,
The soul from divine drinks inebriate.
'Wine Saki red wine, for pity's sake'
Song of love to the rose of Shiraz,
To the garden the nightingale in lament.
Shakhe-e-nebat with a stolen gaze,
Red lips is the other horizon in the cup.
'Song such as this hath need of no man's
Praise, beauty like this can be concealed
The divine is love and love the divine,
Self is self no other limits alienate.
The muse is love and the love is a song,
The word a fortune and the tongue is unknown.
Hafez of Shiraz (1317-1390)
