Jaluluddin Rumi

Rumi, The Poetry Of

Rumi, claimed as the national poet of Iran, Turkey & Afghanistan had an early life dedicated to scholarly studies. He only started to write poetry after encountering a holy man called Shams whose subsequent death instilled a profound grief in Rumi and an outpouring of many thousands of verses in Persian. He also intrinsically linked with Sufism. Many of these titles are on our audiobook version which can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.

    The Poetry Of Jaluluddin Rumi
    Sakkarepmmu Sakkarepmmuhas quoted5 years ago
    I burst my breast, striving to give vent to sighs,
    And to express the pangs of my yearning for my home.
    He who abides far away from his home
    Is ever longing for the day ho shall return.
    My wailing is heard in every throng,
    In concert with them that rejoice and them that weep.
    Each interprets my notes in harmony with his own feelings,
    But not one fathoms the secrets of my heart.
    My secrets are not alien from my plaintive notes,
    Yet they are not manifest to the sensual eye and ear.
    Body is not veiled from soul, neither soul from body,
    Yet no man hath ever seen a soul."
    This plaint of the flute is fire, not mere air.
    Let him who lacks this fire be
