Page of calligraphy in the nasta'liq script from an album of poetic verses
(image added 2010)
the verses read:
O hear, lamenting one's beloved and moaning with grief are a pleasure,
A tormented soul and bloodshot eyes [from weeping] are a pleasure.
If you have indulged in everything but the lamentation of your beloved,
All of that would amount to nothing—the anguish is what brings pleasure.
