quatrain 598

From sunlight, a version of quatrain #598:
Without love,
all worship is a burden,
all dancing is a chore,
all music is mere noise.

All the rain of heaven may fall into the sea.

Without love,
not one drop could become a pearl.

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