Poetry Tuesday: Mix Ink With Tears

By a Persian poet named Sa’di, who died in 1292.

This I write, mix ink with tears,
And have written of grief before, but never so grievously,
To tell Azra Vamiq’s pain,
To tell Laila Majnun’s plight,
To tell you my own
unfinished story.
Take it. Seek no excuse.
How sweetly you will sing what I so sadly write.



Tell me what you think I need to know. . .
