Hafez in time of pandemic


How sweet the flowers are!
Enjoy them now, for they
As quickly as they bloomed
Will fall and fade away.

We're all friends here my dear,
Sing love songs! Why should you
Sing yet again? As that
Has gone, so this must too!

~ Hafez Shirazi

گل عزیز است غنیمت شمریدش صحبت
که به باغ آمد از این راه و از آن خواهد شد

مطربا مجلس انس است غزل خوان و سرود
چند گویی که چنین رفت و چنان خواهد شد
