Из переписки с проф. Фрэнклином Льюисом: "Shayak"

Dear Prof. Lewis,

the question is about the Rumi's ghazal # 0236, translated in English by you.
There is the following line in it:
"the fruitful scattering of joy of the children of the Shayak..."

I tried to find out what does the word "Shayak" mean, but failed.
All the meaningful refs are pointing to a small tributary of the Hindus river.
Would you, please, kindly help me?
Regards, Sergey
