Hafez Poem

Don't surrender your loneliness
So quickly
Let it cut more deep. Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can
Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice
So tender,
My need of God

did you translate that yourself? good job if you did, it's still "poetic"

No, I can't take the credit for this one. I actually found it on Amazon as an excerpt from a book of Hafez's translated poems.
