[Sunlight] Evidence of that not seen



If it rains during the night, no one sees the rain,
for then every soul and breath is asleep;
but the freshness of every beautiful rose garden
is clear evidence of the rain that was not seen.


Gar be-bârad shab na-binad hich kas
keh bovad dar khvâb har nafs o nafas
Tâzegi-ye har golestân-e jamil
hast bar bârân-e penhâni dalil

-- Mathnawi VI: 2724-2725
