A Persian Poet

12 Dec, 2014

Though the tree drinks from hidden roots,
we see the display of its branches.
Whatever the earth took from Heaven,
it yields up honestly in Spring.

Whether you have stolen a bead or a jewel,
whether you have raised up a flag or a pen,
the night is gone and day has arrived,
and the sleeper shall see what he has dreamed.

Mevlana Jalauddin Rumi — Persian poet
