Руми

Rumi, "Hope is the deaf man"

Sunlight offers a selection from Mathnawi, Book III in:
1. a version from the Helminskis
- assumed to be derived from Nicholson
- an assumption which is based on translation peculiarities and errors, which Helminskis have apparently carried over from Nicholson, in various poems,
2. a translation from Professor Nicholson,
3. accompanied by a transliteration from Dr. Gamard
