May your goodness always increase

May your goodness always increase

And your smiling face never cease

In our head the thought of your love

Every day is on the increase

Every cedar and every spruce

From your height may you hear their pleas

The eye not intrigued by thee

Its tear drops a bloody disease

Your eye for mesmerizing hearts

Is a magician and master-tease

Wherever a heart is longing for thee

Impatiently shears its own fleece

The beauty of all the lovers

Beside your swan is ugly geese

The heart that is out of love’s lease

From the circle of union release

Hafiz’s soul, your ruby lips ease

Away from base lips, if you please

Hafez Shirazi
