This Longing

by ameliaswan (WorldCat user published 2009-04-19) Excellent Permalink

This is one of the most beautiful collections of Rumi poems translated by Coleman Barks, an American poet and sufi.  My boyfriend gave it to me when I was 19 and it was a beautiful introduction to a spiritual path
