Hafiz, c. 1320 to 1389, a beautiful, mystic, Sufi poet from Persia
Translated by Daniel Ladinsky

At This Party

I don't want to be the only one here
Telling all the secrets -

Filling up all the bowls at this party,
Taking all the laughs.

I would like you
To start putting things on the table

That can also feed the soul
The way I do.

That way
We can invite

A hell of a lot more
