Variations On The Word Love

Poem By Margaret Atwood

I am reading this poem in the original language, Farsi (Persian) .

الایاایهاالـساقی ادرکاساوناولـها
O beautiful wine-bearer, bring forth the cup and put it to my lips,

که عشق آسان نموداول ولی افتادمشکلها
Path of love seemed easy at first, what came was many hardships.

A good start with a nice poem, Ali. You may like to read my poem, Love And Lust. Thank you.
If you are looking for Hafiz Shirazi, It is Hafez Shirazi and wrongly spelled Hafiz. Please correct your search keyword.
Good rendition of words to utmost justice. A well encapsulated piece nicely brought forth with insight. Thanks for sharing.
