'Heart to Heart'
The 'Heart to Heart' card includes artwork by Veronica Doubleday. Veronica accompanied her husband, John Baily, to Afghanistan and lived there with him during the mid-1970's. It was during this time that Veronica's appreciation for Afghan poetry, art and music grew.
On the inside left cover you will find a beautiful poem by 13th century Persian poet, Rumi.
What sprouts up every spring,
will wither by autumn,
but the rose garden of Love,
is always green
Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi's "Mathnawi" translated by Kabir Helminski from "The Rumi Collection" edited by Kabir Helminski (Shambhala, 2000).
