Once gain Heart needs ecstasy.

For Heart desires the purple wine
Which instantly appeases its hunger .

And your hairs like the dark night,
Then let’s your wine become fire and burn liverÂ !
And it will be remedy for t heheart.
Thus you will refresh our hearts
and inflame our chests.
Those who drink the wine poured from your hands
Can run hundred stages without halt.
Whithout the light and the fire of Love,
Without the Designer and the power of Creator,
We are not able to reachÂ Union.

This fire massing and washing the Heart,
My heart claim after it.
And here come Newroz and the New Year,
When a such light is rising.
As so long as the shining wine
Won’t colour your prayer carpet,
You’ll stay far from the King’s daughter

Hay hay your charming braids,
Divided by your spot beautyÂ !

And not onlyÂ Kurdistan,
But Shiraz and Yang and Wan also,
All of them wouldÂ willingly offert,
And evenÂ Ispahan would pay tribute.
Dark eyes murderous bows,
Circles and spheres full of angels.
(By her love my Age is gone
And LoveÂ left me for the whirling dance) (4)

Dance andÂ semÃ¢ reachÂ a Perfect level,
