Subject: Rumi's Wish


O harp,
the strains of a longing heart is my wish.
O flute,
your burning cry is my wish.

Play the great song of Arabia;
I am the Great Bird,
and the song of Solomon is my wish.

Play the song of Iraq,
and let its soothing melody
calm the hearts of its people -
this is my wish.

Play on! Play on! -
High notes, low notes, every note.

I have fallen into a dream
with your peaceful melody.
Now awaken me with a loud gong -
this is my wish.

I hear your song -
the voice of God,
a symphony of love playing to the world.
That music is my witness -
I am a pious man,
pure faith is my wish.

O love, vanquish the intellect;
O love, that bewildering moment
is my wish.

O sweet wind,
passing over love's grass,
blow in my direction,
for the fragrance of love is my wish.

In the Face of my master, all beauty is revealed.
One sight
One sight
that is my wish.
