First Enticed Me To Take The Cup, By Hafiz Shirazi

First enticed me to take the cup,
When I got drunk, told me to stop.
My eyes watery, my heart on fire,
I became dust and your wind picked me up.

اول بـه وفا می وصالـم درداد
چون مست شدم جام جـفا را سرداد
پر آب دو دیده و پر از آتـش دل
خاک ره او شدم بـه بادم برداد
