Tomorrow (Dec. 17) marks the anniversary of the death of the Sufi poet Rumi.

Here are five of our favorite poems by him…

A PRAYER
Rumi
(trans. by R.A. Nicholson)

Pray in this wise and allay your difficulties:
“Give us good in the house of our present world,
And give us good in the house of our next world.
Make our path pleasant as a garden.
And be Thou, O Holy One, our goal!”
