  1. Such a beautiful and optimistic poem. This reminds me of a ghazal by Hafiz:
    “In a vision I heard this clearly whispered
    Study those who sing the most, but are free of criticism or praise.
    Following that advice, things turned out just as I suspected
    I started spending more time with birds.”
