Sanskrit blog: A lyric of Rumi

रूमिरुवाच
मदुत्कटेच्छा  विहगस्य कूजितैः प्रशान्तिमाप्नोत्यहमप्यमेयम् ।
प्रहर्षमाप्नोमि विहंगवन्मन्-मुखेन गायेः किमपीश्वर त्वम् ॥
A rough rendering of
Birdsong brings relief
to my longing
I'm just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say!
Please universal soul, practice
some song or something through me! 

Jalal ad-Dīn Muhammad Rumi
