In the quest for you, I sobbed at the knees of the mounts, at the edge of the sea and the turfs; And over a broken window– that made a wooden frame– for the cloudy blues of the skies.

In the quest for you,
I sobbed at the knees of the mounts,
at the edge of the sea and the turfs;
And over a broken window–
that made a wooden frame–
for the cloudy blues of the skies.

In hope of your image,
how long, long, how long,
this frame shall remain plain?

Your charm,
was allowing for the passage of the breeze,
and of Love, and also of Death.
Hence,
you became a pearl:
Enviable, precious, immense;
The Treasure that solely bears,
the entire delight of belonging to this land.

Your name is a sunrise,
shining over the vast front of the skies.
Be hallowed your name,
Be hallowed Your Name!

“You shall never die for your heart- is animated by the Fire of Love.
This eternality- is written in The Scripture, decreed by The One Above.”

(Persian Poet Hafez, 1326–1390)
