Wednesday’s Poetry: Love Song

Love Song
by Hafiz
trans­lat­ed by Daniel Ladinsky

I taste what you taste. I know the kind of lyrics your
Soul most likes. I know which sounds will become
Resplen­dent in your mind and bring such pleasure
Your feet will jump and whirl.

I have no use for divine patience—my lips are always
Burn­ing and every­where. I am run­ning from every corner
Of this world and sky want­i­ng to kiss you.

I am riot­ing at your door;
I am spin­ning in midair like gold­en falling leaves
Try­ing to win your glance.

I am sweet­ly rolling against your walls and shores
All night, even though you are asleep. I am singing from
The mouths of ani­mals and birds…to let
you know the Beau­ti­ful Truth
