O Drop!

listen, o drop,
give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the ocean.

listen, o drop,
bestow upon yourself the honor,
and in the arms of the sea be secure.
who indeed should be so fortunate?

an ocean wooing a drop
in God's Name, in God's Name,
sell and but at once!

give a drop,
and take this sea full of pearls.

... Mevlana Rumi
