Beauty Of The Rose You Eclipse, By Hafiz Shirazi

Beauty of the rose you eclipse,
Every bud quietly away slips.
How can the rose compete with you?
Rose shines in moonlight, moon in your grips.

ای شرمزده غنچه مـسـتور از تو
حیران و خجل نرگس مخـمور از تو
گـل با تو برابری کـجا یارد کرد
کاو نور ز مـه دارد و مـه نور از تو
