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
