Hafiz on Sun and Earth

by Esmat

My philosophy teacher here at Andover shared a very good poem today in one of his meditation emails. It’s by Hafiz. I think it encapsulates that one should not always expect something in return for the nice things that one might do to someone else.

Even after
All this time

The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that:
It lights the
Whole sky
