‘Khud Kooza O, Khud Kooza Garo’ – Maulana Rumi (1207-1273)

.
Himself the vessel and the maker
Himself the clay from which it’s made
Himself is he that drinks from it
That breaks and spills it after he has paid
.
.
khud kooza o, khud kooza garo, khud gil e kooza
(himself the vessel, himself maker-of-it, himself material-of-it)
khud rind o subu kush.
(himself the one who drinks)
khud bar sar e aan kooza kharidaar bar amad
(himself it is as vessel’s buyer manifests)
ba shikast ravan shud
(and breaks and lets flow/spill)
.
.
Maulana Rumi. What more need be said?
