The courier in his intimation signed, On festive night let rise a crescent-moon, Such that by no one, from its slenderness, it through its veil of darkness be discerned; So that the play of thought and fantasy may captivate magicians by its spells. Pour out a lot of pepper on the fire, and make the fierce fire crackle (as it burns); The cold and hardened wax (then) in this heat make soft, that it become of gentle heart.”
-Nizami Gəncəvi, “The Seven Beauties”
