Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

(1207 - 1273 / Persia)

Passion makes the old medicine new:


Passion makes the old medicine new:
Passion lops off the bough of weariness.
Passion is the elixir that renews:
how can there be weariness
when passion is present?
Oh, don't sigh heavily from fatigue:
seek passion, seek passion, seek passion!

    It is amazing how fast this poem can be memorised :) but with a line of repitition, it makes it slightly... Palpable. Is that the word? Well anyway, this is GOOD... (Report) Reply
