Your Beauty

by Ahmad Jami

English version by Mahmood Jamal
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Each who has seen Your beauty fine
Utters honestly, 'I have seen the Divine.'

Everywhere Your lovers wait for grace,
Remove Your veil, reveal Your face!

I am in the ocean and an ocean is in me;
This is the experience of one who can see.

He that leaps into the river of Unity,
He speaks of union with his Beloved's beauty.

-- from Islamic Mystical Poetry: Sufi Verse from the Early Mystics to Rumi, Translated by Mahmood Jamal
