I Needed To Hang On To Her Curly Ring, By Hafiz Shirazi

I needed to hang on to her curly ring,
Help me please, let my affairs take wing.
Said, release my hair, instead take my lips,
Let go of long life, with good times swing.

در سنبلـش آویختـم از روی نیاز
گفتـم مـن سودازده را کار بساز
گفـتا کـه لبم بگیر و زلفم بگذار
در عیش خوش‌آویز نه در عمر دراز
