[Sunlight] Keep looking in those ruined places for a treasure



Children tell stories,
but in their tales are enfolded
many a mystery and moral lesson.
Though they may relate many ridiculous things,
keep looking in those ruined places for a treasure.

Kudakân afsâneh-hâ mi âvorand
darj dar afsâneh-shân bas serr o pand
Hazl-hâ guyand dar afsâneh-hâ
ganj mi ju dar hameh-ye virâneh-hâ

-- Mathnawi III:2602-2603
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance
