To the Shah



FROM HAFIZ.


Thy foes to hunt, thy enviers to strike down,
Poises Arcturus aloft morning and evening his spear.


TO THE SHAH.

FROM ENWERI.


Not in their houses stand the stars,
But o'er the pinnacles of thine!


TO THE SHAH.

FROM ENWERI.


From thy worth and weight the stars gravitate,
And the equipoise of heaven is thy house's equipoise.


Ralph Waldo Emerson
