A description of the experience
Ghazal 153: gul imshab akhir-i shab mast bar khast
Drunk tonight the rose arose near dawn
and bedecked the banquet with a goblet tulip-red.
Over here the grass sat rooted to the spot.
The cypress stood attentive there on the right.
The breeze was blowing,
and the drowsy narcissus
went stumbling up and down all over.
In the garden, I was lying with a friend,
by God, like a moon without wax or wane.
A cry rose from my heart without my wanting
when she wanted to get up from Khusrau's side.
