Persian Classical Poetry – Vaezan By: Hafez
Isn’t Persian sugar?!!
Preachers By: Hafez
Preachers who look glorious on stages and on heights,
When alone, (they) do something different!
I have a problem, ask the most knowledgeable person in the community,
Why those who preach for repentance repent less?
They seem not to believe in the Day of Judgment
That’s why they change the Words, they misinterpret God’s work.
Dear God, place such notorious wealthy devils on their true lowly position,
And let them not boast about what they’ve gained from people.
Dear love seekers, wake up and seek the Temple of Love,
Because there alone, you’ll find the wine that puts your spirit on high
His endless love, even if it puts lovers on fire,
Gives you new face in love, revealed from the heaven
Worship o lovers, at the Tavern of Love,
Because there alone, you’ll find the water that transforms your soul
At dawn, a voice was heard from the heaven above,
Wisdom said, “It seems saints and angels are practicing the words of Hafez!”
