The nightingales are drunk, by Hafez

Hello there, 

I just wanted to do a quick post here about a book I've finished reading last week.

Bought this book from bookdepository.com
I got this book less than a week after I put my order and what do you know, it came with a wonderful bookmark! I gotta say, I love the bookmark! Oh yes, I coloured them myself hehe, now now I am considering to buy that colouring book because it so fun to do. hehe.

Anyway, back to this book. I, honestly, didn't actually do much poetry, not really a fan but you know, reading beautiful sentences, compiled in certain way, with deeper meaning, you just enjoyed doing that. A friend asked me where I got the idea of reading this book by Hafez, tbh, I can't remember. But I know somewhere somehow, I got introduced to this person, Hafez *or at least to his work kihkihkih*

I don't fully understand the book, much of the poems were talking about a drunk man, not sure whether due to wine or love but he is drunk and intoxicated. But there are certain things Hafez mentioned that worth to be pondered upon. About how the greater sorrow can cause greater joy and some sort of other things as well.

If you searched for this book on Goodreads, you'll find too many negative comments that might get you uninterested with this book. But it worth a read, at least once, haha. For my friends here, if you feel like reading this, you can always borrow this book from me. It'll take you a day to finish it, less actually but yeah, just tell me, and I'll lend you the book.

Anyway, that's all from me, gotta run now, I got a lab session starting in 5 minutes.
