[Sunlight] "Does happiness reflect in your face?"



Does happiness reflect in your face
from the wine of the true religion?
Where is your generous hand
if you've beheld the Ocean of Abundance?
The one who sees the River doesn't grudge water to the thirsty,
especially the one who has beheld that Sea and those mighty Clouds.


Dar rokhet ku az may-e din farrokhi
gar be-didi Bahr ku kaff-e sakhi
Ânkeh Ju did âb-râ na-konad darigh
khâsseh ân ku did ân Daryâ o Migh

-- Mathnawi VI: 804-805
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance"
