Poem by Hafiz

Why all this talk of the Beloved,
Music and dancing,
Liquid ruby-light that we can lift in a cup?
Because it is low tide,
A very low tide in this age
And around most hearts.
We are exquisite coral reefs,
Dying when exposed to strange
God is the wine-ocean we crave-
We miss
Flowing in and out of our
--Khwaja Shams-ud-Din Muhammad Hafez-e Shirazi
