INVENTION OF NEW MEANINGS
It is a gift by God bestowed,
To coin fresh words with meanings new
Yet skilful artist must work hard,
As inborn trend is owned by few.
It is the heat in mason's blood,
Who builds structures of various forms
It may be Behzad's picture hall,
Or house of wine where Hafiz charms.
Without resort to incessant strife,
No skill or art completion gains:
If Farhad does not hew the rocks,
No sparks flash, dark his house remains!
