From the book ‘The subject tonight is love’, 60 wild and sweet poems of Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky.

Just Sit There

Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
Just rest.

For your separation from God
Is the hardest work in this world.

Let me bring you trays of food
And something
That you like to drink.

You can use my soft words
As a cushion
For your
Head.
