Wenn dereinst, wo sie versinken

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

Wenn dereinst, wo sie versinken
  Meine stillen Reste ließen,
Myriaden rothgeflammte 
  Tulpen in die Höhe schießen --
Nicht zu diesem schönen Wunder 
  Möge dich der Weg verdrießen! 
Es beschauend und bestaunend 
  Magst du ahnen, magst du schließen,
Welche Flammen, als er lebte,
  Dir gelodert in Hafisen.
