  • It is the day of great, great joy.
    Let us all now, become friends.
    Let us join our hands.  Let us go to the Friend.
    We are all one, we are not two of one color and hue.
    Let us dance, let us go to the market, dancing.
    The beautiful friends now are starting to dance,
    So let's close the shop and dance, idle and free,
    Today is the day that the souls put on the robe of his grace,
    To mystery's side, to the side of mystery,
    We go dancing as God's guests.
    Al the gods and goddesses have pitched their tents in the garden
    And to see them, now we go to the rose garden

    - Rumi
