Listen, O Rumi

Listen, O drop, 
give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the Ocean.

Listen, O drop, 
bestow upon yourself this honor,
and in the arms of the Sea be secure.

Who indeed should be so fortunate ?
An Ocean wooing a drop !

In God’s name, in God’s name,
sell and buy at once!

Give a drop,
and take this Sea full of pearls.

~ Rumi
