I just saw this poem in Elisha Goldstein's blog:
How did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its being,
We all remain
Too frightened
Really beautiful image.

He attributed this poem to "Hafiz", I am greatly dubious if we can find this image in Hafez's poems and you know there are inaccurate translations of Hafez there, but any way, it was beautiful.
