Love

?Are you fleeing from Love because of a single humiliation
?What do you know of Love except the name
,Love has a hundred forms of pride and disdain
.and is gained by a hundred means of persuasion
:Since Love is loyal, it purchases one who is loyal
.it has no interest in a disloyal companion
:The human being resembles a tree; its root is a covenant with God
.that root must be cherished with all one's might
.A weak covenant is a rotten root, without grace or fruit
,Though the boughs and leaves of the date palm are green
.greenness brings no benefit if the root is corrupt
,If a branch is without green leaves, yet has a good root
.a hundred leaves will put forth their hands in the end

Rumi
