Again Rumi

The breeze of dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth
across the doorsill,
where the two worlds touch.
the door is round and open ,
Don't go back to sleep.

From The Essential Rumi 'translation by Coleman Barks with John Moyne 1995 chap:4
