Ode 509 -- Rise, For Today, the World is Ours

Khiz! ke emrooz jahan ane mast
jan o jahan Saghi o mehman e mast
az del o az dide ye div o pari
dabdabe ye fare soleiman e mast

Rise! For today, the world is ours!
our inner soul and the outer world are both our Master and guest
In the eyes and hearts of angels and demons [alike]
there is the sound of merriment; coming from the joy of Solomon's party
