Sweet birds,

as long as there is spring

Once more

upon the meadow’s throne

you shall sing.

Winter shall pass and

you shall find your tune

The roses shall nod and

cense you with their bloom

Despair not.

If this spinning world

in a day or two

does not bring fortune’s gifts to you

remember, life has many turns

No two of which

brings the same return

Despair not.

Hey! raise those eyes

for you don’t see

the universe’s mysteries

Those secrets hidden from our view

behind the screen are games anew

Despair not.

By Hafez
