Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Here you will find the Poem Lovers of poet Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi


O lovers, lovers it is time 
to set out from the world. 
I hear a drum in my soul's ear 
coming from the depths of the stars. 
Our camel driver is at work; 
the caravan is being readied. 
He asks that we forgive him 
for the disturbance he has caused us, 
He asks why we travelers are asleep. 
Everywhere the murmur of departure; 
the stars, like candles 
thrust at us from behind blue veils, 
and as if to make the invisible plain, 
a wondrous people have come forth.
