[Sunlight] Both Worlds



Both Worlds

There is God's wine, and this
other. Don't mix them. There

are naked pilgrims who wear only
sunlight. Don't give them clothes!

There are lovers content with
hoping. I'm not one of them.

Give a cup of pure fire to your
closest friend, healing salve

to the wounded. To Shams-i
Tabriz, offer up both worlds.

-- Ghazal (Ode) 917
Version by Coleman Barks, with Nevit Ergin
"The Glance"
Viking-Penguin, 1999
