Farid ud-Din Attar - What Madness is This?


 What madness has seized me because of You?
What is this tumult in my soul that You have instilled?
Because of You I am in a state of disarray.
It’s not my norm to behave this way.
I came pure and chaste from the two worlds,
Purified by the fire of Your Love divine.
That fire You have lit in my soul
Shall be my guide, eternal and sublime.
Where is the eye that can see You?
The Beloved is there, but the eyes are blind.
We are lost in our own veil,
While everywhere Your vision prevails.
