The Selected Poetry of Amir Khusrau

Ghazal 1148 -  duzdana dar amad az daram dishab

Stealthily, he came through my door last night,
hair like a thief's lasso slung over his shoulders.
I stumbled to my feet, lost my footing,
and fell faint when he sat down.
Gazing on his beauty, I was stunned
and laid waste, swooning and drunk.
His bewitching, half-intoxicated eyes:
gazelle fawn in a rabbit sleep.

'Whoever sees you for just one day
forgets the kingdom of this world and the next.
Without you, nectar turns to nettles,
and nettles turn to nectar in your hand.
Put a ring in Khusrau's ear.
He is your slave and heeds your call.
