The Day of Resurrection
Rumi

On every side is clamour and tumult, in every street are candles and
torches,
For to-night the teeming world gives birth to the World Everlasting.
Thou wert dust and art spirit, thou wert ignorant and art wise.
He who has led thee thus far will lead thee further also.
How pleasant are the pains He makes thee suffer while He gently draws
thee to Himself!
