One must wash eyes

2ad7e77806df4ef3a644

One must wash eyes, look differently to things words must be washed
The word must be wind itself, the word must be the rain itself
One must shut umbrellas
One must walk in the rain
One must carry the thought, the recollection in the rain
One must go walk in the rain with all the townsfolk
One must see friends in the rain
One must search love in the rain

(Sohrab Sepehri)

As you know Ferdowsi is a big poet and he composed the best and biggest heroic poems in the world Shahnameh, that it doesn’t apply just heroic poems and it has more than 50000 verse.

Hafiz Tomb

 
My heart no longer brooks my hand; sages, aid for God my woe!                                                   Else,alas! my secret deep, son the curious world must know
The bark we steer has standard: O breeze auspicious swell                                                            We yet may see once more the Friend we love so well
O bounteous man, since Heaven sheds o’er thee blessings mild                                                    Inquire, one day at least, how fares misfortune’s child 
What holds in peace this twofold world, let this twofold sentence show:                                    “Amity to every friend, courtesy to every foe”
Upon the way of honour, impeded was my range                                                                              If this affect thee, strive my destiny to change
Seek drunkenness and pleasure till times of strait be o’er:                                                             This alchemy of life can make the beggar Kore
Submit; or burn thou taper-like, e’en from jealousy o’er much:                                                     Adamant, no less than wax, melts beneath that charmer’s touch
When fair ones talk in Persian, the streams of life out well                                                             This news to pious Pirs, My Saki, haste to tell
Since Hafiz not by his own choice this his wine-strained cowl did win                                         Shaikh, who hast unsullied robes, hold me innocent of sin

 Hafiz

Molana

Each breath is a song of love
From left and right, pass us by
We’ll return to the world above
Such fate no-one can defy.

We have come from the skies
Befriended angels in heaven
To the same place we will rise
To that city past skies seven.

We are above the skies
And angels we transcend
Why should we compromise?
The House of Songs is our end.

Molana (Rumi) Persian poet and Hakim
