Would you think it odd… – Hafiz

Would you think it odd…

Would you think it odd if Hafiz said,

"I am in love with every church 
And mosque 
And temple 
And any kind of shrine

Because I know it is there 
That people say the different names 
Of the One God."

Would you tell your friends 
I was a bit strange if I admitted

I am indeed in love with every mind 
And heart and body.

O I am sincerely 
Plumb crazy 
About your every thought and yearning 
And limb

Because, my dear, 
I know 
That it is through these

That you search for Him
