English version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva
Secretly we spoke,
that wise one and me.
I said, Tell me the secrets of the world.
He said, Sh... Let silence
Tell you the secrets of the world.
Labhramar faoi choim
mise is an saoi.
Nocht rún an tsaoil dom, ar mé,
Fuist, ar sé. Lig don gciúnas
rúin an tsaoil a nochtadh dhuit.
Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi (1207 - 1273)
