1932, When one poet sat at the tomb of another and read his poetry and felt the depth connection in poetry. wanting to drink from ‘the wine cup’, that Hafez always mentioned.

 

 

So I used to dream of a Persia where bulbuls made love to the roses, where in dreamland gardens, poets sat around their wine cups and invoked visions of ineffable meanings.
