A description of the experience

Nizami – Makhzanol Asrar (The Treasury of Mysteries) – extract from On the honour and dignity of this book 02

On the night when thou sittest at the table of heaven,
throw down a bone to me

Because indeed, I boast that I am thy dog;
I am proud to be thy slave…

My service may lead to some recognition
and the end of this cord will reach its place.

Though the eulogists have prostrated themselves
at this enduring threshold,

I, who have remained in this their stage,
have travelled on a stage before them

I made my sword from the diamond of my tongue
I beheaded all who followed me

The sword of Nezami which strikes off heads,
is not blunted, though it is old.
