Rumi: Unseen Poems (Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets Series)

We rated this book:


Rumi was born over twelve hundred years ago; however, his poems remain relevant and inspirational. Open up this delightful small book and have a blissful meditation. Nearly every line of Rumi’s love poems offers cause for reflection and inspiration, “a hundred thousand flames” as penned by Rumi. Perhaps because Rumi lived in many countries and wrote in many languages, his poetry surpasses any given culture and becomes universal. Much like the Psalms, Rumi’s poems put one into a dreamy happy state.

Rumi was born in what was then Persia as Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi. He is known by many other names. He was a Sufi, mystical poet, and a dervish. In this book of poems, many previously untranslated poems are included.

His poem “One night, wishing to say hello, I knocked on the door of the heart” shows the poet as “a servant of the heart’’ and “drunk with heart” and is as beautiful as the words imply. In this wonderful volume, walk with Rumi through poetry of the heart, soul, and joy.
