quatrain 99

From sunlight, two versions of quatrain #99:
Do you know what the music is saying?
"Come follow me and you will
find the way.
Your mistakes can also lead you
to the Truth.
When you ask,
the answer
will be given."

translation by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1999

do you hear
the fiddle's surround sound
follow me and
your path will be found
only going astray
you'll find a saintly way
only knowing questions
you'll find a reply.

translation by Nader Khalili
"Dancing the Flame"
Cal-Earth, 2001
