      If a tree could wander
      by Rumi


      Oh, if a tree could wander
           and move with foot and wings!
      It would not suffer the axe blows
           and not the pain of saws!
       
      For would the sun not wander
           away in every night ?
      How could at every morning
           the world be lighted up?
       
      And if the ocean's water
           would not rise to the sky,
      How would the plants be quickened
           by streams and gentle rain?
       
      The drop that left its homeland,
           the sea, and then returned ?
      It found an oyster waiting
           and grew into a pearl.
       
      Did Yusaf not leave his father,
           in grief and tears and despair?
      Did he not, by such a journey,
           gain kingdom and fortune wide?
       
      Did not the Prophet travel
           to far Medina, friend?
      And there he found a new kingdom
           and ruled a hundred lands.
       
      You lack a foot to travel?
           Then journey into yourself!
      And like a mine of rubies
           receive the sunbeams? print!
       
      Out of yourself ? such a journey
           will lead you to your self,
      It leads to transformation
           of dust into pure gold!
