Love is the great Hafiz

Is the great work

Though every heart is first an apprentice
That slaves beneath the city of Light.

This wondrous trade,
This magnificent throne your soul
Is destined for
you should not have to think
Much about it,

Is it not clear
An apprentice needs a teacher
Who himself
Has charmed the universe
To reveal its wonders inside his cup.

Happiness is the great work,
Though every heart must first become
A student
To one
Who really knows
About Love.

~ Hafiz
