When the one I love takes a cup of wine in his handHis beauty creates a slump in the market of idolsCXCIXWhat good in being a solitary secret drinkerWe re all drunkards together let s leave it at thatUnravel the heart s tangles and leave the spheres aloneYou won t solve Fate s paradox by parallaxDon t be surprised at Fortune s turns and twistsThat wheel has spun a thousand yarns beforeRespect the cup you hold the clay it s made fromWas the skulls of buried kings Bahman or KobadFor who can tell where Kai or Kaus are nowOr Jamshid s throne gone on a puff of windFarhad dropped tears of blood for Shirin s lipsAnd still I see the tulip blossoming thereI think the tulip knows how Fortune cheatsSo clasps a petalled wine glass till it fadesCome let s get drunk even if it is our ruinFor sometimes under ruins one finds treasureThe breeze of Musalla the waters of RuknabadThey keep me still from wandering far from homeLike Hafiz drink your wine to the sound of harp stringsFor the heart s joy is strung on a strand of silkDXXVIIII went into the garden at dawn to gather rosesWhen suddenly I heard the voice of the nightingalePoor thing he was stricken in anguish for the love of the roseAnd sprinkled the meadows round with his sobs as he lookedfor helpLost then in thought slowly I paced in the gardenConsidering this affair of the rose and the nightingaleThe rose is become the image of Beauty and the nightingaleof LoveThe one will grant no favours yet the other still remains constantWhen the voice of the nightingale prevailed upon my heartit seemed I had no power of endurance leftFor many roses have blossomed here in this gardenBut no one has plucked the rose without the stab of a thornHafiz expect no relief from the turning heavens That wheel has a thousand flaws and grants no favours
