‘A Bird Of The Garden Of Heaven’ – Maulana Rumi (1207-1273)

.
I belong not to this world of dust
A bird of the garden of heaven am I
This body is a cage in which I’m trussed
For a day or three afore I fly
.
.
morghe baghe malakootam niam az aalame khak
(bird-of garden-of heaven, not from this world-of dust/ashes)
do se rozi ghafasi sakhte and az badanam
(two three days cage made from my body)
.
