The Glow of Your Presence

by Hafiz

English version by David and Sabrineh Fideler
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Where have you taken your sweet song?
Come back and play me a tune.

I never really cared for the things of this world.
It was the glow of your presence
that filled it with beauty.

-- from Love's Alchemy: Poems from the Sufi Tradition, Translated by David Fideler / Translated by Sabrineh Fideler
