This Rumi poem turns to the four known and the fifth unknown element:

یک لحظه و یک ساعت دست از تو نمی‌دارم

زیرا که تویی کارم زیرا که تویی بارم


Not a moment goes by

that you cease to be in my heart

Amongst all flowers

I only breathe your fragrance

I am your prey oh, ferocious lion

but rather than escape,

I offer you my heart

Your light is hidden,

but it has set this worldly garment on fire

I stand drinking the cool water you have given me and watch it burn
