Rumi ~ translated by Andrew Harvey
from ‘Light Upon Light’
Those tender words we said to one another
Are stored in the secret heart of heaven.
One day, like the rain they will fall and spread
And their mystery will grow green over the world
Rumi’s Mathnawi~ translated by Andrew Harvey
from ‘Teachings of Rumi’
The wine of Divine Grace is limitless:
All limitations come only from the faults of the cup.
Moonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon;
How much it can fill your room depends on its windows.
Grant a great dignity, my friend, to the cup of your life.
Love has designed it to hold Love’s eternal wine
