Come hither thee one and all and here hear the songs of kohl’in al-deen they be pearls strung along the lips of he lips that hast kissed the fountain of Ruknabad smelt the perfume of the garden of paradise the keys to the unseen in the seen be here to hear the picture in the pattern be here to be seen wisdom or thy doom be at these gates if thee be bold to knock and seek unlock the gates and heaven in thy ears will ring heaven on the lips will bring bliss
