"This is My Face," said the Belovedby Abu-Said Abil-Kheir
English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi
"This is My Face," said the Beloved,
wearing a basket of roses.
Thick, dark mystery flowing over the shoulder,
"This is my hair!"
A hundred musk incense sticks burning,
"This is My Perfume."
Fires everywhere, the whole creation aflame,
"This is My Passion."
