We All Sit in God’s Classroom
Why carry a whole load of books
Upon your back
Climbing this mountain,
Just a few thoughts of God
Will light the holy fire.
For a While
We have all come to the right place.
We all sit in God’s classroom.
The only thing left for us to do, my dear,
Is to stop
Throwing spitballs for a while.
Daniel Ladinskiy (1996): I Heard God Laughing. Renderings of Hafiz, S. 41.
