Robert Thank you for accepting my friend request, Roy.


message 19: by Jalil

Jalil Hail Love, hail Love, because Love is divine
It is tender, it is beautiful and benign
What passion, what passion, we are burning like the sun
It is hidden and obscure, it is an obvious sign.
We’ve fallen, we’ve fallen, it is hard to rise up
We know not, we know not, this complex chaotic design.
زهي عشق، زهي عشق که ما راست خدايا
چه نغز است و چه خوب است و چه زيباست خدايا
چه گرميم، چه گرميم از اين عشق چو خورشيد
چه پنهان و چه پنهان و چه پيداست خدايا
فتاديم، فتاديم بدان سان که نخيزيم
ندانيم، ندانيم چه غوغاست خدايا
*********
Each breath is a song of love
From left and right, pass us by
We’ll return to the world above
Such fate no-one can defy.
We have come from the skies
Befriended angels in heaven
To the same place we will rise
To that city past skies seven.
We are above the skies
And angels we transcend
Why should we compromise?
The House of Songs is our end.
With good fortune may we live
Fate is contradictory,
Gladly our lives may we give
Worldly pride victory.
هر نفس آواز عشق مي‌رسد از چپ و راست
ما به فلک مي‌رويم عزم تماشا که راست
ما به فلک بوده‌ايم يار ملک بوده‌ايم
باز همان جا رويم جمله که آن شهر ماست
خود ز فلک برتريم وز ملک افزونتريم
زين دو چرا نگذريم منزل ما کبرياست
گوهر پاک از کجا عالم خاک از کجا
بر چه فرود آمديت بار کنيد اين چه جاست
*******
Go to sleep
Leave me alone
At nights I leap
Up, on my own.
With waves of desire
Day and night, all alone
Compassion inspire
Else vengeful fits are thrown.
From me run away
Afflictions I’ve sown
For wholeness must pray
Else hardships are grown.
رو سر بنه ببــــالين تنهــــا مـــرا رهـــا کـــــن
ترک من خـــــراب شبگرد مبتـــــــــلا کــــــن
مايم و مــــوج ســودا شب تــــا بروز تنـــهــــا
خـــــواهي بيا ببخشاء خـــواهــي برو جفا کــن
از من گـــريــز تـــا تو هـــم در بــــلا نيفتــــي
بگزين ره سلامت تــــــرک ره بـــــلا کــــــــن
*********
I need a lover and a friend
All friendships you transcend
And impotent I remain
You are Noah and the Ark
You are the light and the dark
Behind the veil I remain
You are passion and are rage
You are the bird and the cage
Lost in flight I remain
You are the wine and the cup
You are the ocean and the drop
While afloat I remain

يار مرا غار مرا عشق جگرخوار مرا
يار تويي غار تويي خواجه نگهدار مرا
نوح تويي روح تويي فاتح و مفتوح تويي
سينه مشروح تويي بر در اسرار مرا
نور تويي سور تويي دولت منصور تويي
مرغ که طور تويي خسته به منقار مرا
قطره تويي بحر تويي لطف تويي قهر تويي
قند تويي زهر تويي بيش ميازار مرا
*******
Upon which path did I tread
So I return, all else I dread;
From Beloved being apart

In the creed of Love is being misled.
If I find another in the whole town
Ain’t but a sign pointing to the Beloved.
I said this is no easy path
In each step a thousand traps spread
آن ره که من آمدم کدامست اي دل
تا باز روم که کار خامست اي دل
در هر گامي هزار دامست اي دل
نامردان را عشق حرامست اي دل
اندر همه شهر اگر کسي هست
والله که اشارتي تمامست
گفتم که مگر رهيست آسان
در هر قدمي هزار دامست
********
Alas that beautiful beloved where hence?
Alas that graceful Goddess where hence?
In our midst like a candle brightly shone
Where hence, alas, without us where hence?
Like a shivering leaf my heart constantly moan
Beloved left at midnight, where hence?
عجب آن دلبر زيبا کجا شد
عجب آن سرو خوش بالا کجا شد
ميان ما چو شمعي نور مي?داد
کجا شد اي عجب بي?ما کجا شد
دلم چون برگ مي?لرزد همه روز
که دلبر نيم شب تنها کجا شد
Rumi

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Roy. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
