Love plays its lute behind the screen --
where is a lover to listen to its tune?

With every breath a new song,
each split second a new string plucked.

The world has spilled Love's secret --
when could music ever hold its tongue?

Every atom babbles the mystery --
Listen yourself, for I'm no tattletale!

(Fakhruddin Iraqi)
