هست مهمانخانه این تن ای جوان

هر صباحی ضیف نو آید دوان

هین مگو کین مانند اندر گردنم

که هم اکنون باز پرد در عدم

هرچه آید از جهان غیب وش

در دلت ضیفست او را دار خوش

.............................

This being human is a guest house...

Every morning a new arrival....

 

A joy, a depression, a meanness

Some momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor!

 

Welcome and entertain them all...

Be grateful for whoever comes

Because each has been sent as a guide

 

 

this is a persian poem from Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (مولانا) one of the greatest iranian poets in all history.

This is probably one of if not my fav from the album. Absolutely beautiful and so fitting for the album. I cried when listening because it just made me so happy that they had made that hahaha :P

 

The poem was beautiful and also just instrumental was gorgeous. I feel like they will play this on tour and have the poem on the screens, a whole U2 sort of thing and it will be absolutely amazing! :D

I thought I was the only one, lol! I cried as well hearing it for the first time. The poem is beautiful and I'm trying to reach this kind of acceptance for my own life as well. And then this message embedded in so beautiful music... Aw.

Sweet interlude and I find the narrator voice soothing. Also provides the central theme of the whole album, so nice addition :)

 

Lana Del Rey also had a poem in the middle of her latest album. I kinda like this, adds an extra artistic touch to the work and also a little breather between songs :)

Absolutely absolutely beautiful. I love the poem and I love that Coldplay used it. As someone has already said, it provides a wonderful breather. The instrumentals and production is amazing, I wish it was longer with more poetry and such but considering its on one of Coldplay's better albums (and certainly the best in years) that's okay.
