Don’t Let Go Of The Cup’s Lips By Hafiz Shirazi

Don’t let go of the cup’s lips
Till you receive your worldly tips.
Bittersweet is the world’s cup
From lover’s lips and the cup sips.

لـب باز مگیر یک زمان از لـب جام
تا بسـتانی کام جهان از لـب جام
در جام جهان چو تلخ و شیرین به هم است
این از لب یار خواه و آن از لـب جام
