the hands of drinkers the empty glass,
My partyís bearer1 is jobless alas.
I keep an eye on sighís inner seat,
Whose source are the fumes of that lampís heat.2
1. The bearer of (of this nationís)
functions who gives them a spiritual food and drinks is missing. The partyís are
going without a principal guest and member of the function.
2. That lampís heat the lamp of the Prophet from which they seek light.
