O Beloved you said of our state don't ask!
be a stranger! & how we relate don't ask!
Yet your grace is abundant & life's benign
our misdeeds don't recall! how we rate don't ask!
If you hanker the key of love's pain to grasp
ask the wick about flame! the wind-spate don't ask
It's Rose-season Hafez! wisdom's last year's news
Seek the gold of now! of why & what don't ask!
