[Sunlight] As it really is



You, who have made it easy
for us to labor fruitlessly in the world,
deliver us!
To us it seems a tempting bait,
and it's really a hook:
show it to us as it really is.


Ay moyasser kardeh mâ-râ dar jahân
sokhreh o bikâr mâ-râ vâ rahân
To`meh be-namudeh be-mâ vân budeh shast
ânchonân be-namâ be-mâ ân-râ keh hast

-- Mathnawi II: 466-467
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
