The moon came to me last night
With a sweet question.
“The sun has been my faithful lover
For millions of years.
Whenever I offer my body to him
Brilliant light pours from his heart.
Thousands then notice my happiness
And delight in pointing
Toward my beauty.
Poem by Hafiz, c. 1320 to 1389, a beautiful, mystic, Sufi poet from Persia
