Peace, one and all…
Don’t keep my ears deprived of the whispering of secrets.
And don’t keep my eyes deprived of those cheeks like pomegranate blossoms.
Don’t keep my hands deprived of the ‘wine of the vintner’.
And don’t keep me deprived for a moment of your own self, O my beloved.
Mevlana, Quatrain no. 1556
