Garcia Lorca praised the Sufi poet. Johannes Brahms was so touched by his verse he used several in his compositions. And even Queen Victoria was said to have consulted Hafiz in times of need — which has been a custom in the Middle East for centuries. The Fal-e Hafiz , is an ancient tradition in which a reader asks Hafiz for advice when facing a difficulty or at an important juncture in their life — treating his books as an oracle and opening them with a deep wish from their soul for guidance.

Hafez’s Poetry in German and Persian
Art should be a lover; it should radiate and allow you to warm yourself if in any way cold. Art can quench inner thirst and hunger. And in studying the lives — and working with the poetry — of Rumi, Michelangelo, St Francis, Kabir, Mira and Hafiz, and several of the other great poet-seers, East and West, I came to learn that there was a wonderful common denominator in their work. They helped me form a three-word definition of art, which I then felt was a true gauge for success of any of poems or writings I ever become involved with, including my own.
As Emerson saw Hafiz as a genuine measure of himself in all of his interactions, I too try to keep Hafiz before me when dealing with another person — or animal, creature or even plant. As water is poured through a cloth to collect impurities, I try and pour myself through the poems of Hafiz, and my images of him.
Those three words that Hafiz exemplifies, that came to me in studying the lives and works of those greats I just mentioned are an important definition and goal of art, and a standard I hold myself to: engage and give.

For when beauty does that the witness, or audience, always benefits. As Hafiz says:. A song's wink aligned me with joy. And a tune paradise hums I came to know.
The forest, letting me walk amongst its naked limbs, had me on my knees again in silence shouting — yes, yes my holy friend, let your splendour devour me. Inherent in engaging someone's interest is to make them present.
And with so many suffering the tyranny of some past event or anxieties about the future, what a gift being in the moment can be, especially then if a jewel can be slipped into your pocket by some magi'sbrush stroke, writings, sculpture, instrument, or ballet step. Hafiz helps us inherit a treasure that is already ours, decreed at birth; and he speaks directly about that in some of his poems — how to file your claim! I have published around Hafiz rendering-poems in six books. Some damage was also done to the binding edge area of the text to the end of Gallienne's Introduction, but we've touched up that and a short tear to cloth at upper spine joint with archival repair adhesive.
So, I'll just say that this is still a good, otherwise sound, unmaked reading copy of the book that can still present well on your shelf. The fore-corner paper of the covers is frayed a bit on all four tips. Sold as is, but we don't think you'll be disappointed understanding that. New York: Pumpkin House Press, Second Edition.
