In Response to a Letter


Even if I have greed I do not have the strength for exertion
Acquiring position is connected with the taste for search

A thousand thanks to God that my nature is contentment
A thousand thanks to God that my mind is not mischievous

Cultivations of human hearts flourish with my writings
In the world I am creative like the ocean feeding cloud

Congratulations to you on these secrets of politics
As my finger nail by Love's grace is breast-excoriating

Desire for audience with kings  is a sign of lifelessness
This secret has been exposed by Hafiz of elegant poetry

If you desire that you elevated to Khizar be
Hidden from Sikandaras eye as immortality's water be
