He Requests the Presence of a Friend

11-26 Anvari
Anvari
Persian
1126 – 1189

 

Your servant sits here in a place,
A place where joys increase:
A singing girl (a radiant moon!)
Plays on her harp sweet tunes.
All that we need for happiness
Is here – except your face.
Therefore we two implore you, friend:
Please join us; please come soon!
