With That Moon Language by Hafez

I recently read this on another blog.  I agree so deeply with the words of this Persian lyric poet that I am reprinting them here.

With That Moon Language

Admit something:
Everyone you see, you say to them,
     "Love me."
Of course you do not do this out loud;
Someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us to connect.
Why not become one
Who lives with a full moon in each eye
That is always saying
With that sweet moon
What every other eye in this world
     Is dying to

-- Hafez
