Persian with RUMI

Ruba'ie #133

When the soul doth smart,
And can the same rehearse,
Singing from the heart
Shall all its grief disperse.

See, the wondrous rose
That in my heart doth bloom,
Never hue it shows,
Nor hides its sweet perfume.

In tarfeh ghûli neghar ke mâ râ beshekûft,
Ná rangh tavân nahûft -ô- ná bôy nahûft.
