And the Great Soul gives to man as dowry the hidden glory of the world.

The Marriage Of the Soul

 

Descending to the earth,

that strange intoxicating beauty

of the unseen world

lurks in the elements of nature.

 

And the soul of man,

who has attained the rightful balance,

becoming aware of this hidden joy,

straightaway is enamored and bewitched.

 

And from this mystic marriage are born

the poets' songs, inner knowledge,

the language of the heart, virtuous living,

and the fair child Beauty.

 

And the Great Soul gives to man as dowry

the hidden glory of the world.

 

- Mahmud Shabistari
