Rubaiyat 05 - Poem by Shams al-Din Hafiz Shirazi

I put my arms around your waist,
A lover’s embrace to taste.
From your resolve it’s obvious
All my efforts will go to waste.

    Beautiful poetry. It portrays an affair where the passion of a lover does not get responded by his muse. Thanks. (Report) Reply
