quatrain 1474

From sunlight, a version of quatrain #1474:
My heart is the rubaab, your love the bow.
My soul weeps quietly
as you play me your song.

Play on, my Beloved!
Let me not miss one note of your melody
nor one beat of your heart.

-- Version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva
A Garden Beyond Paradise
Bantam Books, 1992
