[Sunlight] "Drunk with that sound"



The more anyone loves the sound of invisible waters,
the more he tears bricks from the wall
to toss into that unseen river, drunk with that sound
which the loveless hear as just a splash.


Har keh `âsheq-tar bovad bar bâng-e âb
u kolukh zaft-tar konad az hejâb
U ze bâng-e âb por-e may tâ `onoq
na-shenud bigâneh joz bâng-e boloq

-- Mathnawi II: 1213-1214
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
