Persian with RUMI

Sobh Bekheyr1

Goodmorning

Ruba'ie #99


Listen, while the lute doth play;
Knowest thou what it would say?
'Hither, hither come with me,
I will show the road to thee.

'Erring, erring, thou must come
To be brought at last to home;
Seeking, seeking thou must wind
Till the answer thou shalt find.'



Dânî ke che mîghoyad în bângh-è Rabâb?
Àndar pey-è man bîyâ -ô- rah râ daryâb.

Zîrâ be khatâ râh barî soy-è savâb,
Zîra be so'âl rah barî soy-è javâb.
