  • Hafez of Shiraz said:

    Oh, come let’s scatter rose petals and fill the cup with wine;
    let’s tear the ceiling of the universe and create a new one.
    If the army of woes is intent on shedding the lovers’ blood,
    Cup-bearer and I will ride together and uproot the army’s foundation!
    We’ll pour rose water in the bowl of purple wine;
    we’ll in censer pour the sweetness of the scented wind.
