[Sunlight] Tear drops - Quatrain 17


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of
Quatrain 17:


I'm crying, my tears tell me that much.
Last Spring, they say, the new green, how weak you felt.

Remember any night of all our nights,
but don't remember things I've said.

-- Version by Coleman Barks
Open Secret
Threshold Books, 1984


ah tear drops
brighten my heart
clear the spring blossoms
shining my sight
flowing one night
remembering only
not any indelicate
moments of my life

--Translation by Nader Khalili
Rumi, Dancing the Flame
Cal-Earth Press, 2001
