Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi Poems

  • Le Temple De L'amour
    Le temple de l'amour n'est pas l'amour lui-même;
    Le véritable amour est le trésor,
    Pas les murs.
    N'admirez pas la décoration, ...
  • Der Tempel Der Liebe
    Der Tempel der Liebe ist nicht die Liebe selbst;
    Wahre Liebe ist der Schatz,
    Nicht die Wände darüber.
    Bewundern Sie die Dekoration nicht, ...
  • El Templo Del Amor
    El templo del amor no es el amor mismo;
    El verdadero amor es el tesoro
    No las paredes al respecto.
    No admires la decoración, ...
  • Defeated By Love
    The sky was lit
    by the splendor of the moon
    So powerful
    I fell to the ground ...
  • I See So Deeply Within Myself
    I see so deeply within myself.
    Not needing my eyes, I can see everything clearly.
    Why would I want to bother my eyes again
    Now that I see the world through His eyes?...

Mahabulpiyash: a new rule mewlana jalaluddin rumi it is the rule with drunkards to fall upon each other, to quarrel, become violent, and make a scene. the lover is even worse than a drunkard. i will tell you what love is: to enter a mine of gold. and what is that gold?

Her Toys
 by Robert Service

I sat her in her baby chair,
And set upon its tray
Her kewpie doll and teddy bear,
But no, she would not play.
Although they looked so wistfully
Her favour to implore,
She laughed at me with elfin glee
And dashed them to the floor.
