Your waking through my words to youby Qushayri
English version by Michael A. Sells
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Your waking through my words to you
is complete union.
Your drunkenness from my gaze
permits drinking for you.
The wine-pourer is never wearied,
the drinker never full
from drinking to the dregs the gazes
one whose wine intoxicates the inner heart.
