Last night I dreamt you brought me wine
and poured and poured until my dreams were full,
each one watered till the tendrils grew.
And then I heard you pouring more again for two
and thought I saw my tears reflecting you…
I wasn’t sure, until I woke to find
my body bathed in wine and wrapped in vines
or was it you?
I never knew who turned my night to day
before the dawn had time for dew
~Amir Khusrow Dehlavi (1253-1325), translated from the Persian By Omar Pound, 1971
