The day Love was illuminedby Abu-Said Abil-Kheir
English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi
The day Love was illumined,
Lovers learned from You how to burn, Beloved.
The flame was set by the Friend
to give the moth a gate to enter.
Love is a gift from the Beloved to the Lover.
