Paradox of Moth & Warbler (after Saadi)

O morning warbler!    you who love to sing!
forth from obscurity    yon moth might bring
love's meaning    singed amid the flame of loving
see how she burns    yet utters not a thing!

who speaks of such a burning    barely
knows it!
who dives in fire is dead!    who'll then disclose it?
