Hafiz - A day of Silence

Divan of Hafiz includes paintings on its doublures. Calligraphy by Muhammad Hasan ibn Muhammad ibn Mulla “[Najm]“. Iran, 1842.

 “A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.
A day of Silence
Can help you listen
To the Soul play its marvellous lute and drum.
Is not most talking
A crazed defence of a crumbling fort?
I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,
To yield to Light and Happiness,
To Dance within
In celebration of Love’s Victory!”
