Three Memes, Part 2 (Poetry Meme)

Several memes have been running around in Facebook lately. This is one of three that I've played.

This is a poetry game. In this one, we pass along poetry. Heather S. gave me Rumi.

Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. In 2007, he was described as the "most popular poet in America.".

I've heard the name, but had never seen any of his work. I liked this one:

Bad Dreams

One day you will look back and laugh at yourself.
You'll say, ‘ I can't believe I was so asleep!
How did I ever forget the truth?
How ridiculous to believe that sadness and sickness
Are anything other than bad dreams.'
