Treasure Island

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

(1207 - 1273 / Persia)

A Stone I died


A stone I died and rose again a plant;
A plant I died and rose an animal;
I died an animal and was born a man.
Why should I fear? What have I lost by death?

    The most respected and revered poet in his poem narrates the beauty of life in different varieties of creation which is ultimately the the death that wins and also no loss to the life in its essence. From the beginnning the life from a stone to the human being it is very ideal example of the finality into a human beings's life that the poet says. (Report) Reply
