When There Is Wine, No Need To Cry By Hafiz Shirazi

When there is wine, no need to cry;
Army of sorrows, no need to defy.
Your lips are green, bring forth the wine.
Drinking at the green, everyone must try.

چون باده ز غم چه بایدت جوشیدن
با لشگر غم چه بایدت کوشیدن
سبز است لبت ساغر از او دور مدار
می بر لب سبزه خوش بود نوشیدن
