A(nother) poem by Hafiz. To a beautiful friend.
There is a Beautiful Creature
Living in a hole you have dug
So at night
I set fruit and grains
And little pots of wine and mil
Beside your soft earthen mounds
And I often sing
But still, my dear,
You do not come out
I have fallen in love with Someone
Who hides inside you
We should talk about this problem
I will never leave you alone.
My beautiful friend.
