Hearts imbued with redolence
fill the garden with others sent…
…to pour their wine in waiting chalice
of servants drunk in sultans palace.
Fragrance comes before the rose,
then long after the petals close.
Following the scent of flower white
a nightingale came to rest one night.
Amongst the thorns she made her bed
there from pricked chest, the colors bled.
So the rose received its hue,
from the winged messenger of Allahu.
