O Friend, From Your Foes Your Heart Release, By Hafiz Shirazi

O friend, from your foes your heart release,
In pleasant company drink the good wine with ease.
Confer with those who know, open your heart
And from the ignorant fleas flee like the breeze.

ای دوست دل از جفای دشمن درکش
با روی نکو شراب روشـن درکـش
با اهـل هنر گوی گریبان بگـشای
وز نااهـلان تـمام دامـن درکـش
