Some translated lines from his Book.
I knew not that the jar was faked
its colours were the same
My heart beyond control, I thrust
myself on jar unbaked;
The thing on which my life I staked
in midstream landed me.
By help of which the longing eyes
did see Beloveds face;
The jar, how could I sacrifice
as dear as life to me?
My heart exhausted is and weak,
no strength my limbs have now;
"O Sahar, thou dost know all this,
help me, cast thy tow
I am so ignorant, and thou
my love so great thour art.
The jar, the means to reach, did break,
alas, the maiden drowned,
But only then she heard the sound
of Sahars voice draw nigh.
The means on which she had relied,
did thrust her in the flood;
And only after she had died
she heard the herdsmans call.
"The jar is broken! Let it go
obstructive screen it was mere
My real being is singing still
soul-music still is here
And still I seek my Sahar dear,
Though without action` now
My hear, you keep on swimming
the jar let break and go ..
My eyes, I train them every day
more of control to know;
The Herdsmen led me, and did show
to me friend, the straight` path.
Suggest no rafts to those who love
nor ask boat-men around;
Sohni that is for Sahar bound
enquiring doth not need.
