Arberry 47   Barks 247-8
n   Be gathered           Stay together, friends.
    together, comrades,   Don’t scatter and
    for this is not the     sleep.
    time to sleep; by     Our friendship is made
    Allah, every
    comrade who sleeps    Of being awake.
    is not of the true
    companions.

n   Whoever is not         The waterwheel
    turning about and        accepts water
    weeping after the      and turns and gives it
    fashion of a             away,
    waterwheel shall not   weeping.
    see the face of the
    garden, he will lose
    the way to the
    garden.

n   You who have             That way it stays in the
    sought the heart's         garden,
    desire in the world of   whereas another
    water and clay, you        roundness rolls
    are running towards      through a dry riverbed
    that river in which        looking
    there is no water.
                             for what it thinks it
                               wants.

          Arberry   Barks
n   May my heart be         n  Stay here, quivering
    unapprised of where        with each moment
    the Beloved is, if my   like a drop of mercury.
    heart is not
    quivering like the
    heart of quicksilver
    for the love of Him.
