غم تنهائی ای عکس گُل رویت سر دفتر زیبائ وی قامت دلجویت عشقِ دل شیدائی عشق است و جوانیها بیتابی رسوائی ای پادشه خوبان داد از غم تنهائی دل بیتو بجان آمد وقت است که باز آئی بی رویتو کی دیدم روز خوش آرامی شد درد غم عشقت سرمایه بدنامی بیمار خرابم کرد با نرگس بادامی ای درد تو ام درمان در بستر ناکامی وی یاد تو ام مونس در گوشه تنهائی سودای سر زلفت دیدی که چسانم کرد در جوش جوانیها پژمرده خزانم کرد فریاد غم عشقت بی نام نشانم کرد مشتاقی مهجوری دور از تو چنانم کرد کز دست نخواهد شد پایان شکیبائی پیوسته دل عشاق بیتاب نمیماند گر بسته کنی زخمی خوناب نمیماند اسباب تمنا شو کاسباب نمیماند دایم گل این بستان شهداب... »

Morning In The Garden Of Tilips

One morning in the garden of tulips I asked the breeze Whose martyrs are these (flowers) wearing bloody shrouds? The answer was: Neither you know the secret Hafiz, nor I It is better to talk about the ruby red wine and the sweet lipped beauties Hafiz Shirazi »

Persian poet’s 700-year-old manuscript, signed by Shah Jahan, at Asiatic Society

KOLKATA: He expressed the spiritual experiences of a mystic, in love with his beloved. In his own enchanting way , he wove themes of ambiguity into his poems. “A poet for the poets”, Hafiz immortalised words intimate, playful and hopefully real. Now, nearly 700 years after the Persian great’s death, Asiatic Society has stumbled upon his handwritten manuscript -the ‘Divan-i-Hafiz’ -which is one of the very few such surviving manuscripts in the world. If that was not enough, the manuscript also contains an unpub lished ghazal. The news has sent the rich world of Per... »

دو غزل زیبا از حضرت حافظ شیرازی رح و حضرت صائب تبریزی رح

حضرت حافظ رح ای که با سلسله زلف دراز آمده‌ای فرصتت باد که دیوانه نواز آمده‌ای ساعتی ناز مفرما و بگردان عادت چون به پرسیدن ارباب نیاز آمده‌ای پیش بالای تو میرم چه به صلح و چه به جنگ چون به هر حال برازنده ناز آمده‌ای آب و آتش به هم آمیخته‌ای از لب لعل چشم بد دور که بس شعبده بازآمده‌ای آفرین بر دل نرم تو که از بهر ثواب کشته غمزه خود را به نماز آمده‌ای زهد من با تو چه سنجد که به یغمای دلم مست و آشفته به خلوتگه راز آمده‌ای گفت حافظ دگرت خرقه شراب آلوده‌ست مگر از مذهب این طایفه بازآمده‌ای حضرت صائب تبریزی دلربایانه دگر بر سر ناز آمده‌ای از دل من چه به جا مانده که باز آمده‌ای در بغل شیشه و در دست قدح... »

Will Beat You Up By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Will Beat You Up Jealousy And most all of your sufferings Are from believing You know better than God. Of course, Such a special brand of arrogance as that Always proves disastrous, And will rip the seams In your caravan tent, Then cordially invite in many species Of mean biting flies and Strange thoughts- That will Beat you Up. »

O Beautiful Wine-Bearer By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

O beautiful wine-bearer O beautiful wine-bearer, bring forth the cup and put it to my lips Path of love seemed easy at first, what came was many hardships. With its perfume, the morning breeze unlocks those beautiful locks The curl of those dark ringlets, many hearts to shreds strips. In the house of my Beloved, how can I enjoy the feast Since the church bells call the call that for pilgrimage equips. With wine color your robe, one of the old Magi’s best tips Trust in this traveler’s tips, who knows of many paths and trips. The dark midnight, fearful waves, and the tempestuous whirlpool How ca... »

The Secret Draught Of Wine By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

The Secret Draught Of Wine THE secret draught of wine and love repressed Are joys foundationless–then come whate’er May come, slave to the grape I stand confessed! Unloose, oh friend, the knot of thy heart’s care, Despite the warning that the Heavens reveal! For all his thought, never astronomer That loosed the knot of Fate those Heavens conceal! Not all the changes that thy days unfold Shall rouse thy wonder; Time’s revolving sphere Over a thousand lives like thine has rolled. That cup within thy fingers, dost not hear The voices of dead kings speak through the clay Ko... »

Here Will I Take My Rest By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Here Will I Take My Rest My lady, that did change this house of mine Into a heaven when that she dwelt therein, From head to foot an angel’s grace divine Enwrapped her; pure she was, spotless of sin; Fair as the moon her countenance, and wise; Lords of the kind and tender glance, her eyes With an abounding loveliness did shine. Then said my heart: Here will I take my rest! This city breathes her love in every part. But to a distant bourne was she addressed, Alas! he knew it not, alas, poor heart! The influence of some cold malignant star Has loosed my hand that held her, lone and far She... »

The Days Of Spring By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

The Days Of Spring THE days of Spring are here! the eglantine, The rose, the tulip from the dust have risen- And thou, why liest thou beneath the dust? Like the full clouds of Spring, these eyes of mine Shall scatter tears upon the grave thy prison, Till thou too from the earth thine head shalt thrust. Translated by: Gertrude Bell »

Arise O Cup- Bearer By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Arise O Cup- Bearer ARISE, oh Cup-bearer, rise! and bring To lips that are thirsting the bowl they praise, For it seemed that love was an easy thing, But my feet have fallen on difficult ways. I have prayed the wind o’er my heart to fling The fragrance of musk in her hair that sleeps In the night of her hair-yet no fragrance stays The tears of my heart’s blood my sad heart weeps. Hear the Tavern-keeper who counsels you: ‘With wine, with red wine your prayer carpet dye! ‘ There was never a traveller like him but knew The ways of the road and the hostelry. Where shall I r... »

Whoever Had Found His Way To The Tavern’s Block By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Whoever had found his way to the tavern’s block Whoever had found his way to the tavern’s block Would have to be insane if on another door knock Fate never crowned any with drunkenness, except The one who considered this the highest luck. Whoever finds his way into the tavern From the bounty of the wine, temple’s secrets unlock. He who read the secrets of this wine, Found the secrets in the dust upon which we walk. Only seek the obedience of the insane In our creed, logic and sanity we mock. My heart asked not for longevity of beauty Because sadly this is the way of the clock... »

Not Worth The Toil! By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Not Worth The Toil! NOT all the sum of earthly happiness Is worth the bowed head of a moment’s pain, And if I sell for wine my dervish dress, Worth more than what I sell is what I gain! Land where my Lady dwells, thou holdest me Enchained; else Fars were but a barren soil, Not worth the journey over land and sea, Not worth the toil! Down in the quarter where they sell red wine, My holy carpet scarce would fetch a cup How brave a pledge of piety is mine, Which is not worth a goblet foaming up! Mine enemy heaped scorn on me and said ‘Forth from the tavern gate!’ Why am I thrust... »

The Rose Is Not Fair By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

The Rose Is Not Fair THE rose is not fair without the beloved’s face, Nor merry the Spring without the sweet laughter of wine; The path through the fields, and winds from a flower strewn place, Without her bright check, which glows like a tulip fine, Nor winds softly blowing, fields deep in corn, are fair. And lips like to sugar, grace like a flower that sways, Are nought without kisses many and dalliance sweet; If thousands of voices sang not the rose’s praise, The joy of the cypress her opening bud to greet, Nor dancing of boughs nor blossoming rose were fair. Though limned by mo... »

From The Garden Of Heaven By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

From The Garden Of Heaven FROM the garden of Heaven a western breeze Blows through the leaves of my garden of earth; With a love like a huri I’ld take mine ease, And wine! bring me wine, the giver of mirth! To-day the beggar may boast him a king, His banqueting-hall is the ripening field, And his tent the shadow that soft clouds fling. A tale of April the meadows unfold– Ah, foolish for future credit to slave, And to leave the cash of the present untold! Build a fort with wine where thy heart may brave The assault of the world; when thy fortress falls, The relentless victor shall k... »

Sweet Melody By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Sweet Melody Come so the rose we may spread, and, let wine into the goblet flow. The roof of the sky we may cleave; and a new way seek more aglow. If an army, the shedder of lovers’ blood, raise sorrow The Saki and I may join and its foundation pull thorough. The rose water we pour into the goblet of ruddy wine: Into the censer of the wind, the sugar and perfume, we cast in twine. Minstrel! In thy hand resteth a merry instrument, a sweet melody play: So we may sing a love-song, and dance to the merry note sans delay. O breeze! To the abode of the Beloved, the soul of ours take; That the ... »

Where Is My Ruined Life By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Where Is My Ruined Life WHERE is my ruined life, and where the fame Of noble deeds? Look on my long-drawn road, and whence it came, And where it leads! Can drunkenness be linked to piety And good repute? Where is the preacher’s holy monody, Where is the lute? From monkish cell and lying garb released, Oh heart of mine, Where is the Tavern fane, the Tavern priest, Where is the wine? Past days of meeting, let the memory Of you be sweet! Where are those glances fled, and where for me Reproaches meet? His friend’s bright face warms not the enemy When love is done– Where is the ex... »

My Friend Has Fled By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

My Friend Has Fled My friend has fled! alas, my friend has fled, And left me nought but tears and pain behind! Like smoke above a flame caught by the wind, So rose she from my breast and forth she sped. Drunk with desire, I seized Love’s cup divine, But she that held it poured the bitter wine Of Separation into it and fled. The hunter she, and I the helpless prey; Wounded and sick, round me her toils she drew, My heart into a sea of sorrow threw, Bound up her camel loads and fled away. Fain had I laid an ambush for her soul, She saw and vanished, and the timid foal, Good Fortune, slipped... »

The Rose Has Flushed Red By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

The Rose Has Flushed Red The rose has flushed red, the bud has burst, And drunk with joy is the nightingale Hail, Sufis! lovers of wine, all hail! For wine is proclaimed to a world athirst. Like a rock your repentance seemed to you; Behold the marvel! of what avail Was your rock, for a goblet has cleft it in two! Bring wine for the king and the slave at the gate Alike for all is the banquet spread, And drunk and sober are warmed and fed. When the feast is done and the night grows late, And the second door of the tavern gapes wide, The low and. the mighty must bow the head ‘Neath the arch... »

Drops Of His Heart’s Blood By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Drops Of His Heart’s Blood THE nightingale with drops of his heart’s blood Had nourished the red rose, then came a wind, And catching at the boughs in envious mood, A hundred thorns about his heart entwined. Like to the parrot crunching sugar, good Seemed the world to me who could not stay The wind of Death that swept my hopes away. Light of mine eyes and harvest of my heart, And mine at least in changeless memory! Ah, when he found it easy to depart, He left the harder pilgrimage to me! Oh Camel-driver, though the cordage start, For God’s sake help me lift my fallen load, An... »

Slaves Of Thy Shining Eyes By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Slaves Of Thy Shining Eyes SLAVES of thy shining eyes are even those That diadems of might and empire bear; Drunk with the wine that from thy red lip flows, Are they that e’en the grape’s delight forswear. Drift, like the wind across a violet bed, Before thy many lovers, weeping low, And clad like violets in blue robes of woe, Who feel thy wind-blown hair and bow the head. Thy messenger the breath of dawn, and mine A stream of tears, since lover and beloved Keep not their secret; through my verses shine, Though other lays my flower’s grace have proved And countless nightingal... »

Wild Deer By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Wild Deer Where are you O Wild Deer? I have known you for a while, here. Both loners, both lost, both forsaken The wild beast, for ambush, have all waken Let us inquire of each other’s state If we can, each other’s wishes consummate I can see this chaotic field Joy and peace sometimes won’t yield O friends, tell me who braves the danger To befriend the forsaken, behold the stranger Unless blessed Elias may come one day And with his good office open the way It is time to cultivate love Individually decreed from above Thus I remember the wise old man Forgetting such a one, I ne... »

My Eyes Drown In Tears By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

My eyes drown in tears My eyes drown in tears, yet thirst for but one chance I’ll give away my whole life, for Beloved, but one glance. Be ashamed of Beloved’s beautiful eyes and long lashes If you have seen what I have, and still deny me my trance. O traveler, leave these city gates behind and go back Tread the same path, and towards my Beloved you’ll advance. With such shortage of love, I submit to my fate That drunken gypsy’s love is now my circumstance. The aromatic flowers, the perfume of that hair Is only a sample from my Perfumer’s fragrance. O gardener, li... »

The Margin Of A Stream By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

The Margin Of A Stream The margin of a stream, the willow’s shade, A mind inclined to song, a mistress sweet, A Cup-bearer whose cheek outshines the rose, A friend upon whose heart thy heart is laid: Oh Happy-starred! let not thine hours fleet Unvalued; may each minute as it goes Lay tribute of enjoyment at thy feet, That thou may’st live and know thy life is sweet. Let every one upon whose heart desire For a fair face lies like a burden sore, That all his hopes may reach their goal unchecked, Throw branches of wild rue upon his fire. My soul is like a bride, with a rich store Of m... »

Falsely Pious By Shams al-Din Hafiz Shiraz

Falsely pious Falsely pious, of our state are unaware No offence if their words our hearts tear. On the path, whatever you meet is for your good On the straight and the narrow, can’t be lost there. Whatever the rook may play, we’ll knock it down On the chessboard of lovers, Kings won’t dare. What is this multi-patterned, tall, simple dome? Who is wise to this riddle? Show me where? Is this your grace, O Lord, powerful, wise? Too many hidden wounds; no time to catch a breath of air. It’s as if the Judge of our Court is not fair. This Royal Seal, sign of God does not bear... »
