play The Breeze At Dawn

from Out Beyond Ideas BUY Slabster

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep

You must ask for what you really want
Don't go back sleep

People are moving back and forth
Across the doorsill
Where the two worlds touch

The door is round and open
Don't go back to sleep

Jalaludin Rumi  (1207-1273) Afghanistan/Turkey

Translated by: Coleman Barks and John Moyne
