[Sunlight] "That oneness you can’t know by reasoning"



The beauty of the heart
is the lasting beauty:
its lips give to drink of the water of life.
Truly it is the water, that which pours,
and the one who drinks—all three
become one when your talisman is shattered.
That oneness you can't know by reasoning.

Kân jamâl-e del jamâl-e bâqist
do labesh az âb-e hayât sâqist
Khvod hamu âbast va ham sâqi va mast
har seh yak shod chon telesm-e to shekast
Ân yaki-râ to na-dâni az qiyâs
bandagi kon zhâzh kam khâ nâ-shenâs

-- Mathnawi II: 716-718
