Poem by Hafiz: The Great Secret

two glasses of white wine

God was full of Wine last night,
So full of Wine

That He let a great secret slip.

He said:

There is no man on this earth
Who needs a pardon from Me–

For there is really no such thing,
No such thing
As Sin!

The Beloved has gone completely Wild–
He has poured Himself into me!

I am Blissful and Drunk and Overflowing.

Dear world,
Draw life from my Sweet Body.

Dear wayfaring souls,
Come drink your fill of liquid rubies,
For God has made my heart
An Eternal Fountain!

From: I heard God laughing, poems of Hope and Joy
