'And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.'

and this is the result:
I said "water," expecting the word would satisfy my thirst!
Talking all about the second and third..When I haven't understood the first.
Jonah, where's that boat going? Your ship set with eager sails
There's a swirling storm soon blowing.
And just like the clouds they bring a darkness and a hard rain's gonna fall
I felt the crowds bring a loneliness and a hard rain's gonna fall.
She always weighed me down but, afraid I might need her, I dragged her around
(It's best to keep close sackcloth and ash in a whitewashed town)
She wore that phony smile on her face, I guess like a bandage on a wounded place
While I kept the keys to every old lock just in case.
Rehearsed indifference tossed aside, Our narrow arms spread wide,
"What unseen pen etched eternal things on the hearts of humankind -
But never let them in our minds?"
The clouds they brought a darkness, And a hard rain's gonna fall
And all my laughter ends in emptiness, And a hard rain's gonna fall.
My every medicine causes more illness, And a hard rain's gonna fall
And until I let you go I didn't know, you were never mine at all
But now I spend my days in ever-increasingly complicated ways, convincing myself of the rightness of each word I say
Ya sabur, subhannallahi, a-uduhu billah minash-shaitnair-rajim, al-hamdu lillah, bismillahir rahmanir rahim.
