[Sunlight] Until springtime brings the touch of God



The soil is faithful to its trust:
whatever you have sown in it, you reap the same.
But until springtime brings the touch of God,
the soil does not reveal its secrets.


Khâk amin o harch dar vay kâshti
bi khiyânat jens-e ân bardâshti
Tâ neshân-e Haqq niyârad nawbahâr
khâk serr-hâ-râ na-kardeh âshkâr

-- Mathnawi I: 509;511
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
