I know none other
except ‘Ya Hu’ and ‘Ya man Hu.’
I am intoxicated with Love’s cup,
the two worlds have passed out of my ken;
I have no business save carouse and revelry.
If once in my life I spent a moment without thee,
From that time and from that hour I repent of my life.
If once in this world I win a moment with thee,
I will trample on both worlds,
I will dance in triumph for ever.
O Shamsi Tabriz,
I am so drunken in this world,
That except of drunkenness and revelry
I have no tale to tell.
From Divan-i Shams
