Rumi poem

There is a passion in me that doesn't long for anything fromanother human being.

I was given something else, a cap to wear in both worlds.

It fell off.

No matter.

One morning I went to a place beyond dawn, a source of sweetnessthat flows and is never less.

I have been shown a beauty that would confuse both worlds,but I won't cause that uproar.

I am nothing but a head set on the ground as a gift for Shams.

Mevlana, Jelaluddin Rumi

Eyvallah, Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
