SILSILAT AL DHAHAB by Abdel Rahman Jaami

From: Silsilat al Dhahab.

What is poetry? The song of the bird of the intellect.
What is poetry? The likeness of the world of eternity.

The value of the bird becomes clear through it,
And one discovers whether it comes from the oven of a bath house or a rose garden.

It composes poetry from the Divine rose garden.
It draws its power and sustenance from that sacred place.
