ramadano

Ramadano ja
la muezino spronas
virkokon pigran

Ramadan
the muezzin wakes
the lazy rooster

FOR SHEER PLEASURE

Thief of minarets,
check if you have the mine shafts
in which to hide them.*

“We dance along Death’s icy brink,
but is the dance less full of fun?”**

If it’s your teacher
who says so, then dye with wine
your prayer carpet***

* Eastern proverb
** Sir Richard Burton, The Kasidah,
Vienna, 1880
*** Hafiz

Comment by 'The Quoting Master'

Hvala, Borut!

Minaretŝtelist’
ĉu vi havas minŝaftojn
por kaŝi ilin?
(Proverba orienta)

Ni dancas ĉe la Mortrando glacia,
sed ĉu la danco malplie plezuras?
(Richard Burton, La Kasidao)

Se via instruisto gxin
ordonas, tinkturu per vino
vian preĝtapiŝon
(Hafiz)
