God´s flute

You need to become a pen 

In the Sun´s hand.

We need for the earth to sing

Through our pores and eyes.


The body will again become restless

Until your soul paints all its beauty

Upon the sky.

Don´t tell me, dear ones,

That what Hafiz says is not true,

For when the heart tastes its glorious destiny

And you awake to our constant need

for your love God´s flute will beg For your lips

Hafez or Khwajeh Shams al-Din Muhammad Hafez-e Shirazi, a 14th-century Persian mystic and poet.
