Rumi quatrain, #13 Foruzanfar

For a lifetime, I have not seen your rose garden-
Nor the vintner’s narcissus eye, coy and drunken.
Such time has past since I last saw your face,
You are now invisible-  like purest devotion!

عمریست ندیده ایم گلزار ترا
وان نرگس پر خمار خمار ترا
پنهان شده ای ز خلق ماننده وفا
دیرست ندیده ایم رخسار ترا
