So Drive Forth Your Little Donkey

Peace, one and all…

Childhood has gone and youth has faded from the young.
The day of old age has come, so fly up from this world.
The agreement for every guest is three days of hospitality.
Sir, three days have elapsed, so drive forth your little donkey.
Mevlana, Quatrain 1801
