Bulleh Shah - He Who is Stricken by Love

He Who is Stricken by Love by Bulleh Shah English version by Mahmood Jamal He who is stricken by Love Sings and dances out of tune. He who wears the garb of Love Gets blessings from above. Soon as he drinks from this cup No questions and no answers remain. He who is stricken by Love Sings and dances out of tune. He who has the Beloved in his heart, He is fulfilled with his Love. No need he has for formality, He just enjoys his ecstasy. He who is stricken by Love Sings and dances out of tune.

² from Islamic Mystical Poetry: Sufi Verse from the Early Mystics to Rumi, Translated by Mahmood Jamal

Did you know that Bulleh Shah is the most popular poet on the Poetry Chaikhana website? I check the web statistics every week, and his

pages consistently have the most visitors. ±A reflection of how loved he is in many parts of the world. So« ready to sing and dance? Go ahead, be wild, be foolish. When you¶re consumed by Love, it doesn¶t matter if you¶re out of tune.
