If God Threw A Party

Based on a poem by Hafiz, as translated by Daniel Ladinsky.

If God Threw a Party

Copyright ©2010 Bret Hesla. bret.hesla@gmail.com

If God threw a party and invited all the world
Then how would you treat the other guests when you arrived?
For I tell you, oh I tell you
There is no one in this world
Who’s not upon that jeweled dance floor.

Shall we dance
and both let down our guard?
Shall we dance?
This number’s not too hard.
It’s awkward doing nothing.
as long as here we are?
Shall we dance?
