Rumi quatrain, #117 Foruzanfar

The Water of Life is a drop of bliss from your face-
And the sky’s moon a glimmer compared to your face!
I said, my desire is for moonlight all the long night
A night of your dark curls that adorn your bright face!

ای آب حیات قطره از آب رخت
وی ماه فلک یک اثر از تاب رخت
گفتم که شب دراز خوام مهتاب
آن شب شب زلف تست ومهتاب رخت
