The sun never says to the earth you owe me ...

Even after all this time 
The sun never says to the earth, 
“You owe Me.” 

Look what happens with 
A love like that, 
It lights the Whole Sky.
- Daniel Ladinsky

The poem is inspired by Hafiz, but its not a translation as its most often quoted. It was written by Daniel Ladinsky.
