Rumi quatrain, #1706 Foruzanfar

A man whose longing breaks into heaven-
And a man God had better left unborn.
What a thousand-fold fraud when people give
Both that and this one the title of man!

مردی که فلک رخنه کند از دردی

مردی که خداش کاشکی ناوردی

غبنست هزار غبن کاین خلق لقب

آنرا مردی نهند و اینرا مردی
