‘I beg thee that to no one else thou showest
These words I send-in such a hidden way
That none but thou may cipher what I say;
Read them in some safe place as best thou knowest.’

When in her heart these words of mine thou sowest
For HAFEZ, speak in any tongue thou knowest;
Turkish and Arabic in love are one-
Love speaks all languages beneath the sun.
