The Flame of Love
Rumi
(trans. by R.A. Nicholson)

How long wilt thou dwell on words and superficialities?
A burning heart is what I want; consort with burning.
Kindle in thy heart the flame of Love,
And burn up utterly thoughts and fine expressions.
O Moses! the lovers of fair rites are one class,
They whose hearts and souls burn with Love another.
