You, Who Are So Proud Of Your Name By Hafiz Shirazi

You, who are so proud of your name
If you are not in love, then shame!
Befriend not lovers, who are insane,
If sane sobriety is your fame.
Your head is sober from the wine of Love
Drinking grape juice is your game.
Melancholic face and painful cries,
Make lovers’ pain, somewhat tame.
Hafiz, let go of infamy and name,
Seek more wine, your drunkenness inflame.

ای که دایم به خویش مغروری
گر تو را عشق نیست معذوری
گرد دیوانـگان عشق مـگرد
کـه به عقل عقیله مشهوری
مستی عشق نیست در سر تو
رو کـه تو مست آب انـگوری
روی زرد اسـت و آه دردآلود
عاشـقان را دوای رنـجوری
بـگذر از نام و ننگ خود حافظ
ساغر می ‌طلب که مخـموری
