[Sunlight] We are the healers of spirit -- Ghazal 174



We are healers, wise men from the East!
We have cured many from sorrow and blindness,
we uproot the cause of all pain.
We bring the dead to life because
we have learned our skills from Christ,
ask those who have witnessed our signs.
We mix our medicine from plants of paradise
and need no instruments
for we run through the body like thought.
We are the healers of spirit and
do not look for reward.

But before we leave,
remember not to speak of us, guard your words
for this world is full of unfriendly ears.

-- Ghazal (Ode) 1474
