The Gift – Poems by Hafiz

At my last class, a fellow classmate pulled out this book and said it was her absolute favorite. She has a copy beside her bed and reads it every night.

Here’s a popular one that I love. What’s cool is I found one that seems to follow, but I’d never come across it before.

Sharing them both here. 🙂

THE SUN NEVER SAYS

Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth,

“You owe
Me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the
Whole
Sky.

THAT DOES PERISH

The
Earth would die
If the sun stopped kissing her.

Hafiz is now such an exquisite world
That perishes

When God is not
Near.
