Rumi quatrain, #1722 Foruzanfar

When you revolve around Saturn, you become Saturn,
And you become a Man when you revolve around Men.
You become ruby when you revolve around this mine,
And you become a mine when you whirl around Janan!

Note: Saturn is the planet of “fate”, and Janan means Beloved.

کیوان گردی چو گرد کیوان گردی
مردی گردی چو گرد مردان گردی
لعلی گردی چو گرد این کان گردی
کانی گردی چو گرد جانان گردی
