O God! give musicians sweet honey!
To play the drum, give them tireless hands!
They give their physical strength [to play] for love;
Give them true strength in return.
They fill my ear with your message;
Give their fortune to hundred eyes to see the king!
Like pigeons they coo in love;
Give them the safe sanctuary of your kindness.
They sharpen the intellect with your praise;
You, too, praise them in return.

(Jalaluddin Rumi - Divan 2342:1-5)
