Shams Al-din Hafiz Shirazi Poems

  • Rubaiyat 41
    I wish that fate would cease this carnage,
    And to the lovers give their due wage.
    In times of youth the rein in my hands,
    Now on the saddle, I ride in old age....
  • Rubaiyat 13
    Every friend who talked of love, became a foe.
    Every eagle shifted its shape to a crow.
    They say the night is pregnant, and I say,
    Who is the father? And how do you know?...
  • Rubaiyat 30
    I spent my life chasing my wishes
    What benefits fate furnishes?
    Whomever to I said I loved you,
    Turned to my foe, why my luck ravishes?...
  • Here Will I Take My Rest
    My lady, that did change this house of mine
    Into a heaven when that she dwelt therein,
    From head to foot an angel's grace divine
    Enwrapped her; pure she was, spotless of sin; ...
  • Arise And Fill A Golden Goblet
    Arise! and fill a golden goblet up
    Until the wine of pleasure overflow,
    Before into thy skull's pale empty cup
    A grimmer Cup-bearer the dust shall throw. ...
