The sun's radiance in her face is inby Moulana Shah Maghsoud
English version by Seyedeh Dr. Nahid Angha
Original Language Persian/Farsi
The sun's radiance in her face is in
the heart of every particle,
and I am like a wave
glimpsing into every cell.
Through her parting elixir of alchemy
my face becomes golden,
and so I could plunge the heart
of the universe into red fire.
