A world there is for those in love with mines of precious stonesby Mahsati Ganjavi
English version by Edward G. Brown
Original Language Persian/Farsi
A world there is for those in love with mines of precious stones,
But bards select a different world as setting for their thrones.
The bird who eats love's magic grain lives on another plane -
His nest beyond both worlds, ignoring riches, scorning fame.
