Alas, how long, then, must I sorrow so? Thou lov'st me not, and wouldst not be my Love, Then wherefore comest thou to me in Dreams? Com'st thou? My Welcome thou shalt not contemn ; Come not, and who my bitter Grief shall stem? Give them to me, and of thy Woes I'll die Or be consumed, or I'll put up with them. Ah, when will Health to my Sick Heart return! The Good Advice I give it does but spurn. Flung to the Winds, 'twill not be borne away, Cast in the Flames alas, it will not burn. What Flame-singed Moth 's as blundering as I?
On such a Madman who would waste a Sigh? Even the Ants and Serpents have their nests.
The Lament of Baba Tahir
But I have not a Ruin where to lie. My only Sin is loving thee too well. Surely not all thy Lovers suffer so? Even Despair's pale Herbage will not grow. I'm a green Log fresh cut from off the Tree, Heart of Stone, thou burnest not for me, — Though who, indeed, expects a Stone to burn? But I must smoukler till I kindle thee.
The Heart of Man, you say, is prone to Sin, Oh yes! If on the tempting Face they did not look, The Heart, unknowing, would be Pure within. When Trees to grow beyond their boundaries dare. Whom fearest Thou, of Man who makest light? Whom fearest Thou, Who puttest him to flight? What though my Jar of Life be filled with Tears? When I am dead, released from all my Fears, Thy passing o'er my Grave will bring me back To claim again the Bounty of my years.
Like a sad-sounding Flute, Oh plaintively My Heart laments. Love, to be sweetest, Love-Returned must be, For else the Lover's Heart grows sick, you see Take Majnfm, he was desperately in love, But Leila even more in love than he.
All night 1 burn, and all day long I weep, For Days and Nights like this thou art to blame! Oh, evil Fate that I should have to die! But what is Fate when Destiny 's awry? What would it matter if but one small Grief Were mine? I pray thy Sun-like face may never lack The Shafts that split my Heart in swift Attack : Why is the mole upon thy cheek so dark? Objects so near the sun become burnt black. Is this the Outmost Star? I know not, truly, whence my Sorrow comes, But know that thou canst heal it.

He was known by the name of Baba Taher-e Oryan The Naked , which suggests that he may have been a wandering dervish. Legend tells that the poet, an illiterate woodcutter, attended lectures at a religious school, where he was not welcomed by his fellow-students.
The dates of his birth and death are unknown. One source indicates that he died in According to L. Elwell-Sutton: He could be described as the first great poet of Sufi love in Persian literature.
