quatrain 670

From Sunlight, two versions of quatrain 670:
I am hopelessly in love with you, no point
giving me advice.
I have drunk love's poison, no point
taking any remedy.
They want to chain my feet but
what's the point
when it is my heart that's gone mad.

translation by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi

fallen in love with you
I will take no advice
I have tasted the poison
what good can sugar do
they say he is mad
and in chains
he must be put
mad is my heart
what is a chain
on my foot

translation by Nader Khalili
