A Beautiful Iranian Mind

Even after all this time,

The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look what happens with a love like that.

It lights the whole sky.

Hāfez, Persian Poet from the 1300s

Just to be clear on this one, neither one of us are fans of Iran. This guy was from Persia and this was circa 1300. I wish the Iranians would go back to poetry instead of blowing each other up. Poetry sounds nicer than bombs going off. Just my opinion.

Nice poem and I agree with Ed. More than 100% if that is possible!
