For Lovers, the only lecturer is the beauty of the Beloved...BY Rumi

For Lovers, 
the only lecturer 
is the beauty of the Beloved 

Their only book and lecture 
and lesson is the Face.

They are silent outwardly,
but their penetrating remembrance rises
to the high throne of their Friend.

Their only lesson is enthusiasm,
whirling, and trembling
not the fine points of jurisprudence.

~ Rumi
Mathnawi III, 3847-3849
