by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Nader Khalili
Original Language Persian/Farsi

let's fall
in love
let's turn
all the dirt
in this world
to shiny gold

let's be
a new spring
a love reborn

find our aroma
from the essence
of all who
emit heavenly fragrance

like a fresh tree
bloom and spread
all the blessings
right from inside

-- from Rumi: Fountain of Fire, Translated by Nader Khalili
