New worlds will he conquered
By men of vision now;

On regions known to all.

The Western world bustles with life;
Schools echo with song,
Warmed by youthful bodies,
Drunk. with youthful glances,

Of law—makers of the land,
But what I want, and they do not,
Is a widening of the mind.

His luxury procured, But a g
But a gift of God is the wealth
Of Farhad’s sacrifice.

Of esoteric life,
To liberate the thought
Of schools and monasteries.
