Well. Again with the silver-tongued Persians…
Come! For last night,
the tavern’s unseen voice told me
to be pleased with the divine decree
and not to flee from destiny
Between Lover and Beloved
there is no barrier
You yourself are your own veil, Hafez. Remove yourself!
Hafez of Shiraz

I’ve been to both Shiraz and the tomb of Hafez some distance north, where I bought a copy of his works. He is still revered by the Persians.
And rightly so.
