quatrain 534

From sunlight, a translation of quatrain #534:
Who says that the Eternally Living is dead,
Who says that yonder Sun of Hope is dead -
He is the sun's enemy; climbing onto the roof,
He veiled his eyes and cried: "The sun is dead!"

Translation by Annemare Schimmel
"I Am Wind, You are Fire"
Shambhala, 1992
